The World's Light


Your sun shall no more go down, or your moon withdraw itself; for the Lord will be your everlasting light.

Isaiah 60:20
Christ is the world’s light, Christ and none other;
born in our darkness, he became our Brother.
If we have seen him we have seen the Father:
Glory to God on high!

Christ is the world’s peace, Christ and none other;
no one can serve him and despise another.
Who else unites us, one in God the Father?
Glory to God on high!

Christ is the world’s life, Christ and none other;
sold once for silver, murdered here, our Brother.
He who redeems us reigns with God the Father.
Glory to God on high!

Give God the glory, God and none other;
give God the glory, Spirit, Son, and Father.
Give God the glory, God with us our Brother;
Glory to God on high!
 Fred Pratt Green (1969)

I have come as light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in the darkness.
 John 12:46
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Shine on me this day, O Christ, for you are the light of the world.
✙ 
After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
