For Epiphany.


Once we waited in darkness,
In sadness and in fright.
Now we know who we waited for,
And Jesus is our light.

Our God was born as a baby—
In weakness, not in might.
In his life and death he reveals true glory,
For Jesus is our light.

When our path is uncertain,
When hope lies out of sight,
Christ, illumine the way ahead.
Lord Jesus, be our light.

The poor and weak are forgotten.
The world is ruled by night.
We reflect God's ray of eternal day,
For Jesus is our light.
