Lead, Kindly Light
by John Henry Newman

Written in 1833 by John Henry Newman as a poem titled "The Pillar of Cloud". In some hymnals, one may find a fourth verse added by Edward H Bickersteth Jr, Bishop of Exeter. It is usually sung to the tune Lux Benigna, composed by John Bacchus Dykes in 1865, to Alberta by William H Harris, or as a choral anthem by John Stainer (1886). Arthur Sullivan also did a setting, Lux in Tenebris.
