Light Leadings



Tune: Engelberg

('All praise to to thee, for thou, O King divine')

********

Light of the world come to us, and do shine

In our lives, and your image true refine

You reveal beams of light, 'tis life divine

To know you 'tis fair, fine

 

For light you give and we see way ahead

You ever with us, risen from the dead

Help us to follow in your steps each day

You the Life, Truth, and Way

 

Guard us from sin, your presence here within

Our hearts confess you, some new song begin

Lighten those in darkness that they you see

And so they blessed shall be

 

Help us to turn, not stay in darkness deep

You our Shepherd and each your sheep you keep

Progressing on with you throughout life's rhymes

Knowing your perfect times

 

'Til Rapture dawns and then eternal light

Shall we behold, glorious to our sight

O grant that more to you be gathered in

That we souls for you win

 

Your Spirit, we pray, strengthen us today

Your promise to be with us e'er alway

So confident in you, share gospel true

Evangelise anew

            So is your real name Steve??? I'm glad you have a real name because I keep picturing you as a guinea pig with an orchid in its hair.........now at last I see Steve in his armour in 1066....
