 John 8:12

  When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, 
“I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life”.

 

The Light

A brilliant light came to earth one day

Here for a blest moment, but couldn’t stay

***

Left heaven’s throne to heal the land

Carried the burden’s for every man

***

Covered with blood and dressed in thorns

All heaven and earth began to mourn

***

Radiant beams stretched long and wide

The brightness faded, washed out and died

***

Wrapped in death, the light passed away

Buried in the grave for three silent days

***

Loosed from death’s claws, a day so grand

The light was crucified, but rose again

***

Now the precious light shines brighter than before

The light of the world lives forever more
