Let us light a candle

In a world where people walk in the darkness, 
let us turn our faces to the light,
to the light of God revealed in Jesus,
to the daystar scattering our night.

For the light is stronger than the darkness
and the day will overcome the night,
though the shadows linger all around us,
let us turn our faces to the light.

In a world where suff’ring of the helpless
cast a shadow all along the way,
let us bear the cross of Christ with gladness
and proclaim the dawning of the day.


Let us light a candle in the darkness,
In the face of death a sign of life:
As a sign of hope where all seemed hopeless,
as a sign of peace in place of strife.
