Beauty of God here unfurled--
Light of our fathers and theirs,
Light of our future and prayers--
Don't let our focus grow dim.
Don't let us follow our whims.
Wash us and set us apart.
Shine brilliant grace through each heart.
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12 ESV)
