Light of the World
My spirit thirsts as heaven's angels sing
the words which lift me high above the earth
my heart embraces joy to which I cling.
My mind conceives that, to God, I'm of worth,
my future now is sealed in heaven's vault
for none can snatch me from my lofty berth,
Yet I have won my seat there by default.
He bought my ticket with his only Son,
who took my place and suffered death’s assault.
The angels cannot therefore be outdone
as joyously they raise their songs of praise,
while those of us who've free salvation won,
in time will spend unnumbered blissful days
with One whose star outshines the sun's own rays.
