Verse 1:
G          D/F♯    Em               D        G
  O Jesus, Son of God, so full of grace and truth,
              D/F♯   Em             D      G
The Father's saving Word: so wonderful are You.
Am7           G/B         C2               Dsus4
  The angels longed to see,  and prophets searched to find
Am7         G/B             C2
  The glory we have seen revealed.
Chorus:
C
Light of the world, Light of the world,
                                      G
Light of the world, You shine upon us.
C
Light of the world, Light of the world,
                                      G
Light of the world, You shine up on us. 
Coda:
Am7                 G/B
Light of the world, Light of the world,
C2                      Dsus4               G
Light of the world, You shine up on us. x3 [to end]
Verse 2:
     G       D/F♯    Em                  D     G
You shone up on the earth, but who will understand?
              D/F♯    Em              D     G
You came unto Your own, but who will recognise?
Am7              G/B        C2              Dsus4
  Your birth was prophesied,   for You were the Messiah,
Am7            G/B             C2     Dsus4
  Who came and walked upon the earth.
Am7          G/B          C2             Dsus4
  Your glory we have seen,   the one and only King,
Am7              G/B            C2
  And now You're living in our hearts.
Verse 3:
G            D/F♯        Em                D       G
  In You all things were made, and nothing without You;
          D/F♯   Em                    D       G
In heaven and on earth, all things are held in You.
Am7            G/B         C2           Dsus4
  And yet You became flesh,   living as one of us,
Am7          G/B           C2       Dsus4
  Under the shadow of the cross,
Am7                  G/B           C2               Dsus4
  Where through the blood You shed,   You have made peace again,
Am7             G/B                C2
  Peace for the world that God so loves.

O JESUS, SON OF GOD,
So full of grace and truth,
The Father's saving Word:
So wonderful are You.
The angels longed to see,
And prophets searched to find
The glory we have seen revealed.

You shone upon the earth,
But who will understand?
You came unto Your own,
But who will recognize?
Your birth was prophesied,
For You were the Messiah,
Who came and walked upon the earth.
Your glory we have seen,
The one and only King,
And now You're living in our hearts.

Light of the world, Light of the world,
Light of the world, You shine upon us.
Light of the world, Light of the world,
Light of the world, You shine upon us.

In You all things were made,
And nothing without You;
In heaven and on earth,
All things are held in You.
And yet You became flesh,
Living as one of us,
Under the shadow of the cross,
Where through the blood You shed,
You have made peace again,
Peace for the world that God so loves.
