O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
Man in darkness cried out for the light. From the time of Adam and Eve after the fall, they yearned for the promise. The Savior who would come and reunite them to relationship with the Father.
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
People watched. They were told He was coming. Then 2000 years ago, two babes, one a witness for the Light to come, and on that first Christmas the Light was born in human flesh. God and man in one child.
The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe
And Jesus, the Light of mankind, God with us, showed the way. And died for our sins.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
And Rose from dead, Alive forevermore. Placing His Light in those who believed on Him. To be His witnesses.
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
Today, you carry that Light. Shine that those groping in despair and hopelessness can see His Light.
