May We Walk Worthily

I wanted to share the words from a song we often sing in church, which was also sung at the Easter vigil this past Saturday night. Our family took a big step that night...a wonderful step, though. Now to see what is ahead!

Christ Be Our Light

v. 1--This is the night of new beginnings.
This is the night when heaven meets earth.
This is the night, filled with God's glory,
Promise of our new birth!

Refrain: Christ, be our light! Shine in our hearts.
Shine through the darkness.
Christ, be our light!
Shine in Your church gathered today.

v. 2--This is the night Christ our redeemer
Rose from the grave, triumphant and free,
Leaving the tomb of evil and darkness,
Empty for all to see.

v. 3--Now will the fire kindled in darkness
Burn to dispel the shadows of night.
Star of the morning, endless as heaven,
Dawning throughout the earth.

v. 4--Sing of the hope deeper than dying.
Sing of the power stronger than death.
Sing of the love endless as heaven,
Dawning throughout the earth.

v. 5--Into this world morning is breaking.
All of God's people, lift up your voice.
Cry out with joy, tell out the story,
All of the earth rejoice.

May His light shine forth through us, for all the world to see.
Praise to our resurrected King!!!
