Be the Light
1. Be the light in my darkness, Be the peace in my soul,
Be the source of all goodness, Be my life, be my goal.
Be the light for my journey, Be the love in my heart,
Be the hope that surrounds me, Every day a new start.
2. Be the light that’s unchanging, In our suffering and our pain,
Be the light that brings healing, Through our love once again.
Be the light of compassion, Be the grace to befriend
The lost and the lonely, Every day to the end.
3. Be the light of forgiveness, Be the blessings that we share,
Be the world’s transformation, Through our kindness and care.
Be the light of a new dawn, Be the thanks that I give,
For the joy of each moment, Every day that I live.
