“I am the Light”

“I am the Light”

Jesus the Son of God, Himself God.

(The Gospel History, Section 79)

Again therefore Jesus spake unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.

“I am the Light”

(The Saviour of the World, Vol V Book IV Poem XXXVII)

The Light of the World by Holman Hunt

Lo One stood up and cried, I am the Light
Of all the World
! A sudden lightness spread—
In each man’s heart a gleam of light was shed,
A moment’s sweet emergence from the night.

The blessedness of light! With brows grown bright,
Some basked in emanations of the Day,
Allowed the blessed light its generous play,
Nor feared the radiance should take instant flight,—

An evanescent joy: on these He shone,
The Dayspring from on high with healing come
For all men’s miseries: but there were some,
Enwrapped them in the darkness; would have none
Of the gifts He came dispensing, chose to roam
Groping in darkness—mocking at the Sun!

St. John viii. 12.
