Light

"The light of Christ" rings out in vigil song
through the darkness the people respond
"Thanks be to God"
We weave the salvation story
into the night relying only
on the one true light.
Can we notice this is where we place
our hope, our trust.
Do we see the small flame burning?
Inviting us to stand by its light
in the storytelling, so we know who saves.
One small light cuts the darkness
making the windows shine and sparkle.
Reminding us we are never truly alone,
nor does our Christ light shine just within us.
This light of the night, this light of our life.
Lives deep inside not letting the darkness
consume us no matter how dim it gets.
We walk by this light, have faith in this light,
and show others Christ in our lives.
