LIGHT OF THE WORLD
Some see the darkness of this world...I see it
Too, but in my darkness, light pierced through,
In spite of all my sin, while death reigned in the
Sons of men, because they disobeyed, but light
Still came through for me and you, and always
Will if we look to Him to get us through anxiety,
Depression, and aimless direction, sometimes
Settling over mind and soul...yet the Holy Spirit
Is there comforting me, making me whole, and
Bringing life, light, and joy, full of midnight hope.

John 3:19 -- And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world,
and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
John 8:12 -- Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the
world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the
light of life.
John 12:46 -- I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on
me should not abide in darkness.
