                     Longing for light, we wait in darkness
                     Longing for truth, we turn to you.
                     Make us your own, your holy people, 
                     light for the world to see.
                             Christ, be our light!
                             Shine in our hearts.
                             Shine through the darkness.
                             Christ, be our light!
                             Shine in your Church gathered today.
