Said “Let there be light” and there was light
God of this world, through history
We see You shine we see You shining

They followed the star, Your guiding light
That led them to You, led them to life
God of this world, in mystery
We see You shine, we see You shining

Jesus, Jesus
You light up the world
You light up our lives!
Jesus, Jesus
Your light is alive in me

Your word has foretold, the end of time
The glory of You, our only light
Savior and King, eternally
We'll see You shine, we'll see You shining

No hint of darkness, can stand in Your light
Can stand in Your light, Lord
You've shattered the darkness and given us life
Your glorious life
