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.

Christ, be our light!
Shine in our hearts
Shine through the darkness
Christ, be our light!
Shine in your church gathered today.

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

Christ, be our light!
Shine in our hearts
Shine through the darkness
Christ, be our light!
Shine in your church gathered today.

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

Christ, be our light!
Shine in our hearts
Shine through the darkness
Christ, be our light!
Shine in your church gathered today.

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

Christ, be our light!
Shine in our hearts
Shine through the darkness
Christ, be our light!
Shine in your church gathered today.
