The Light of the World is Jesus

Words by P. P. Bliss Music by P. P. Bliss

"The whole world was lost in the darkness of sin,
The light of the world is Jesus.

Both the words and music of this hymn were written by P. P. Bliss in the summer of 1875, at his home in Chicago. It came to him all-together, words and music, one morning while passing through the hall to his room, and was at once written down.
