Lord, the Light of Your Love is shining,
In the midst of the darkness shining,
Jesus, Light of the World, shining upon us,
Set us free by the truth You now bring us,
Shine on me. Shine on me.
Shine, Jesus shine,
Fill this land with the Father's glory.
Blaze, Spirit blaze,
Set our hearts on fire.
Flow, river flow,
Flood the nations with grace and mercy.
Send forth Your word,
Lord and let there be light.
As we gaze on Your kindly brightness.
So our faces display Your likeness.
Ever changing from glory to glory,
Mirrored here may our lives tell Your story.
Shine on me. Shine on me.
