Shiny Call to Worship

We come seeking Jesus,
the Light of the world!
Shine in our hearts Lord Jesus!
We believe in the strength of God
to illuminate our bleakest night.
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness shall not overcome it.
God, in this hour of worship,
kindle in us the light of your love.
Let your light shine through us,
and through our community, always.
