Representative Text

1 Jesus is the light, the way,
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light;
Shining brighter day by day,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God.

Refrain:
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God.

2 We, who know our sins forgiv’n,
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light;
Find on earth the joy of heav’n,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]

3 As we journey here below,
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light;
Oh, what joy and peace we know,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]

4 We will sing His pow’r to save,
We are walking in the light,
We are walking in the light;
We will triumph o’er the grave,
We are walking in the beautiful light of God. [Refrain]
