There are 19 verses to choose from. Sample lyrics:
Chorus: Love, may we live by your light.
Let us be light for the world.
Magi who followed the light of your star offered their gifts to your glory.
May we shine brightly wherever we are. Our love will tell your story.
You are the light, the light of the world. Give thanks for the light shining in you.
Let your light shine so that others may see, and glorify God.
When you belong to God you are light, no longer held in the dark night.
Live what is loving and true, my friends, as children of light.
Give your attention to God's good news, like a candle that shines in a dark place;
Let that light fill you and guide you, my friends, and shine with love.
