Longing for Light (Christ, be our Light)

By Bernadette Farrell


                     I
Em              Am   D               E
Longing for light, we wait in darkness.
Em              Am   D               E
Longing for truth, we turn to you.
Em                  Am   D            G
Make us your own, your holy people,
C                   Am        D      D7
Light for the world to see.


Refrain:
G         C           G      Em             Bm
Christ, be our light! Shine in our hearts,
Em                          Am D    
Shine through the darkness.
G          D        Em
Christ, be our light!
Em                    C       Am        D  G
Shine in your church gathered today.

                    II
Em              Am      D                  E
Longing for peace, our world is troubled.
Em              Am    D              E
Longing for hope, many despair.
Em               Am          D            G
Your word alone has power to save us.
C                   Am       D      D7
Make us your living voice.

                   III
Em              Am    D               E
Longing for food, many are hungry.
Em              Am      D              E
Longing for water, many still thirst.
Em                  Am      D             G
Make us your bread, broken for others,
C                 Am      D      D7
Shared until all are fed.

                  IV
Em              Am        D              E
Longing for shelter, many are homeless.
Em              Am        D               E
Longing for warmth, many are cold.
Em                  Am          D            G
Make us your building, sheltering others,
C                     Am       D      D7
Walls make of living stone.

                  V
Em           Am    D              E
Many the gifts, many the people,
Em           Am       D                E
Many the hearts that yearn to belong.
Em                Am     D         G
Let us be servants to one another,
C                  Am            D      D7
Making your kingdom come.
