Cynosure of celestial light,
Shining into darkest night
Piercing through sin's evil

Veil, into men's hearts that
Fail for fear, scorn of sin's
Impending doom, only one

Can deliver us home from
Gloom, and man's perilous
Plight, he is the light of the

World, redemption's story,
God's own son came from
Glory, paid the price to save

Men's souls...Jesus Christ
And him alone, who lights
The pathway back to God.

Matthew 4:16 -- The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.
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 12:35 -- Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
1 John 1:7 -- But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
Matthew 5:14-16 -- Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
