Jesus shines over the aeons of time,
Into the essence of what is me,
The work He has done,
As God’s only Son,
Endures forever to bring God’s grace,
Sending His Spirit into the dark places of fear and despair,
For the Father’s love to destroy the darkness there,
And His glory to shine through me.
The ultimate light is shed and spread,
Joy, hope, acceptance, and praise,
Empowered to share God’s work for all,
Wherever I go, with all I meet,
For all my days.
