Christ be our light

Longing for light, we wait in darkness.
Longing for truth, we turn to You.
Make us your own, Your holy people,
Light for the world to see.

Christ be our light
Shine in our hearts
Shine through the darkness
Christ be our light
Shine in Your church gathered today.

Longing for peace, our world is troubled
Longing for hope many despair
Your Word alone has pow’r to save us
Make us your living voice.

Longing for food, many our hungry
Longing for water, many still thirst
Make us your bread, broken for others
Shared until all are fed.

Longing for shelter, many are homeless
Longing for warmth, many are cold
Make us your building, sheltering others,
Walls made of living stone.

Many the gifts, many the people
Many the hearts, that yearn to belong
Let us be servants to one another,
Making Your kingdom come.
