Christ Be Our Light

Lyrics for Christ Be Our Light by Kamahl

Longing for light, we wait in darkness. 
Longing for truth, we turn to you. 
Make us your own, your holy people,
light for the world to see. 

Christ, be our light! Shine in our hearts. 
Shine through the darkness. 
Christ, be our light! Shine in your church 
gathered today. 

Longing for peace, our world is troubled. 
Longing for hope, many despair. 
Your word alone has pow'r to save us. 
Make us your living voice. 

Longing for food, many are hungry. 
Longing for water, many still thirst. 
Make us your bread, broken for others, 
shared until all are fed.

Longing for shelter, many are homeless. 
Longing for warmth, many are cold. 
Make us your building, sheltering others, 
walls made of living stone. 

Many the gifts, many the people, 
many the hearts that yearn to belong. 
Let us be servants to one another, 
making your kingdom come. 

Canticle of the Sun
By Marty Haugen
Lyrics are from this version:

The heavens are telling the glory of God,
and all creation is shouting for joy.
Come, dance in the forest,
come, play in the field,
and sing, sing to the glory of our God.

Sing to the sun, the bringer of day,
He carries the light of our God in his rays;
The moon and the stars who light up the way
Unto your home.


Praise to the wind that blows through the trees,
The seas mighty storms, the gentlest breeze;
They blow where they will, they blow where they please
To please our God.


Sing to the earth who makes life to grow,
The creatures you made to let your life show;
The flowers and trees that help us to know
The heart of love.


Our God Is Here 
by Chris Muglia 

1. Here in this time, here in this place, 
here we are standing face to face. 
Here in our hearts, here in our lives, 
our God is here. 

Here for the broken, here for the strong, 
here in this place where we belong. 
Here in our hearts, here in our lives, 
our God is here. 
And we cry: 


“Holy! Holy! Holy are you!” 
We cry: “Holy! Holy! Holy and true!”
Amen, we do believe our God is here. 
Our God is here. 

2. Here in the Word, God is revealed, 
here where the wounded can be healed. 
Here in our hearts, here in our lives, 
our God is here. 

Here we become what we receive, 
here in this Eucharistic feast. 
We are the body, living as one; 
our God is here. 
And we cry:
