The Lord is My Light

I wrote this new setting of the text in the LDS hymnbook to sing with one of my voice students.  We're both sopranos, so both parts are high.  I think it would also sing nicely with a soprano on part I and a tenor on part II. 

Voicing: Two high voices
Accompaniment: Piano
Topics: Guidance, Hope, Jesus Christ, Revelation, Savior, Spirituality, Testimony, Trials

Lyrics: James Nicholson, 1828-1876
Music: Rachel P. Mohlman

LYRICS

The Lord is my light; then why should I fear?
By day and by night his presence is near.
He is my salvation from sorrow and sin;
This blessed assurance the Spirit doth bring.

The Lord is my light; tho clouds may a-rise,
Faith, stronger than sight, looks up thru the skies
Where Jesus forever in glory doth reign.
Then how can I ever in darkness remain?

The Lord is my light, my joy and my song.
By day and by night he leads me, he leads me along.

The Lord is my light; the Lord is my strength.
I know in his might I'll conquer at length.
My weakness in mercy he covers with pow'r,
And, walking by faith, I am blest ev'ry hour.

The Lord is my light, my all and in all.
There is in his sight no darkness at all.
He is my Redeemer, my Savior, and King.
With Saints and with angels his praises I'll sing.

The Lord is my light, my joy and my song.
By day and by night he leads me, he leads me along.
