Shine On

Shine, light of peace,
In the dark of war.
Touch heart, mind and soul,
In a world that’s torn

Shine, light of truth,
In the dark of lies.
Touch heart, mind and soul,
Where there is denial

Shine, light of faith,
In the dark of fear.
Touch heart, mind and soul,
For danger lingers near.

Shine, light of hope,
In our dark despair.
Touch heart, mind and soul,
When no one seems to care.

Shine, light of grace,
In the dark of pain.
Touch heart, mind and soul,
Where there’s only blame.

Shine, light of joy,
In the dark of chains.
Touch heart, mind and soul,
Wherever evil reigns.

Shine, light of love,
In the dark of grief.
Touch heart, mind and soul
When there’s no relief.

Shine, light of life,
In the dark of death.
Touch heart, mind and soul,
This world knows no rest.

Shine, light of lights,
In the dark within.
Touch heart, mind and soul,
Where emptiness begins.

Wherever darkness falls,
Shine on, light, shine on.
Burn with radiance pure,
Till all that’s dark is gone.
