Sometimes in this life I need to be, a quiet light for all to see,
Not flickering of words to hear, but, that light with Jesus near,
To be for God one quiet flame, by the power of Jesusí Name,
A light for God in any place; maintained in His love and grace.

When to dark places, I must go; it is His Light I need to show,
Indeed the light of Jesus Christ, shown to a very troubled life,
When even in the darkest hour, His Light is the ultimate power,
To help a darkened heart to see, what one life in Christ can be.

If the time seems not so right, what may be needed is the light,
The Light of Godís Holy Truth, for others, as weíre living proof,
Of the power of, Godís Word, from truths that they have heard,
From truths you have expressed, when at this time light is best.

When Eternal Truths we proclaim, in the Power of Godís Name,
In those times, somewhat dark, The Lordís Light leaves a mark,
Deep upon the heart, of a man, this, as we live out Godís Plan,
To be the Lordís salt and light, while in this world dark as night.

When Godís Word, we do heed, sometimes light is all we need,
This as Godís Holy Spirit moves, upon a soul that He reproves,
Moving upon that soulís heart, with Godís Truth He shall impart,
Through the light within our life, as we truly live for Jesus Christ.
