Lyrics

Light to see by,
Light to walk by,
Light to bless our daily way,
Light that penetrates the darkness,
blast the shrouds of death away.

We prejudge on base of colour,
nation state and ancient creed;
wars are fought and peoples suffer,
fields prepared for hatred’s seed.
By the might of bomb and missile
we prepare earth’s funeral day.
God, prepare us for your promise
earth’s renewal, healing’s day.

Light to see by,
Light to walk by,
Light to bless our daily way,
Light that penetrates the darkness,
blast the shrouds of death away.

Starving children, weeping parents,
cries of race and anger sound,
while the blood of those forgotten
cries for vengeance from the ground;
Landless peasants, jobless workers,
listen for a word of hope;
protest ends for many sufferers
with a gunshot or a rope.

Light to see by,
Light to walk by,
Light to bless our daily way,
Light that penetrates the darkness,
blast the shrouds of death away.

Light of nations and all peoples
marked in Jordan, one of us,
close the book on ancient evils,
call a people kind and just.
Heal the sick and free the prisoners,
meet us in each place of need;
Light of Love, God’s great intention,
drive out curse of hate and greed.

Light to see by,
Light to walk by,
Light to bless our daily way,
Light that penetrates the darkness,
blast the shrouds of death away.
