In the Shadow of Your Resurrection

In the shadow of your Resurrection, please shine a light on us, Lord.  Shine a light on us, in us, through us, ’til all who see must come aboard.

Shine that light around us, Lord, ‘til everyone can see, that they have to come and join us, and be a light for Thee.

Shine that light within our hearts, ’til we are filled with such inner joy, ‘til our hearts must dance or burst, in overflowing contagion for all to employ.

Shine the light of Resurrection, Lord, as we go into the desert and into the street.   Shine that light through what we do, for those we help and those we meet.

Shine that light on our heart-felt efforts, Lord,  as your praises we joyfully sing, your Gospel we humbly read, to make a place for your honor or glory,  to grow this Church as we scatter your seed.

In the shadow of your Resurrection, please shine a light on us, Lord.  Shine a light on us, in us, through us, ‘til all who see must come aboard.

AMEN
