Let Your Light Shine Before Others

Jesus said, "Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven" - Matthew 5:16

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it." - John 1:5


“Light! more light! the shadows deepen,
And my life is ebbing low,
Throw the windows widely open:
Light! more light! before I go.

Softly let the balmy sunshine
Play around my dying bed,
E’er the dimly lighted valley
I with lonely feet must tread.

“Light! more light! for Death is weaving
Shadows ‘round my waning sight,
And I fain would gaze upon him
Through a stream of earthly light.”

Not for greater gifts of genius;
Not for thoughts more grandly bright,
All the dying poet whispers
Is a prayer for light, more light.

Heeds he not the gathered laurels,
Fading slowly from his sight;
All the poet’s aspirations
Centre in that prayer for light.

Gracious Saviour, when life’s day-dreams
Melt and vanish from the sight,
May our dim and longing vision
Then be blessed with light, more light."

Today, let's let our light shine!


“Let Your Light Shine”
Let your light shine before others so they will know
Our God of love’s in the land, and
Let your light shine before others so they may know
The Kingdom of God is at hand.

Let your light shine so they see Him.
Let your light shine, the Kingdom of God is at hand.

Jesus my Light, shine on me with Your love and grace, that I might shine forth Your light to the world. Amen.
