Light of the World

1993 Words by Terry Taylor, Music by Ojo Taylor and Terry Taylor
Recorded by Riki Michele for her album "One Moment Please" (1993)
There's a bridge 'cross this ocean
A thousand prayers in one sigh
And the words left unspoken
Are the tears in my eyes

Send your gentle disturbance
Move the wind brush my ear
Through your ancient allurance
Let every sunrise appear

And I have turned again
To the Light of the World
Hid in my heart within
The Light of the World

I lay down in the fallows
Till I remembered your face
I was falling in battle
And landing here in your grace
Your old ways are unswerving
They crush the high walls to sand
All my shadows of turning
Brushed aside by your hand

And I have turned again
To the Light of the World
Hid my heart within
The Light of the World
THe Light of the World

I dream of the children
On a night cold and still
Climbing up a steep valley
To the top of the hill
They shine their light like a city
And build a fire of Your will
And all the earth sees the wonder
The wonder of Your love

Jesus please haunt us
In the dark where we hide
We are weak and dishonest
In our shame You're denied

Until we turn again to the Light of the World
Hid our hearts within the Light of the World
We must turn again to the Light of the World
Hid our hearts within the Light of the World
The Light of the World
