Words & music by Steve Thorngate


Once we waited and worried,
In fear of endless night.
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, please show us 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.


from After the Longest Night (album & songbook), released October 26, 2018
