Here among us     now, Christ the  light

kindles brighter flames in our trembling hearts.

Living Word, our lamp, come guide our feet

till justice and truth shine like the sun.

Like a city   bright  so  let us blaze;
C#m        B/C#   C#m    A      B/A      G#
lights in every  street turning night to day.
         E       F#m        B   E
And the darkness shall not overcome
                  F#m          B       C#m
till the fullness of Christ's kingdom comes,
E          F#m           Bsus4   B
dawning to God's eternal day.
