And lamps are nio(t for stunny r, Iom1'
Nfr f,-r the light of day.
But for (lark places of the earth.
Where shame and wrong and crime
Or for -the musky twilight gray.
Where wandering sheep have gone
Or where the light of faith grows dim.
And souls are groping after Him.
And as sometimes a flame we find,
Clear shining through the night,
So bright we do not see the lamp,
But only see the light.
So may we shine-His light the flame
That men may glorify His name!
