They Saw the Light - He is the Light!

Come into my heart
Come into my heart
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus
Come into today
Come in to stay
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. 
Light the four Advent Candles and the Christ candle!  This is the season of light and Jesus (Yeshua) is the light of the world.  He is the only light.  He is the servant light of Hanukkah.
Lord, we invite Your light into our darkness.  Please forgive us for our sins.   Today, we make the decision again to turn back to your light and to be agents of Your light.  Thank you for keeping your promise and dying on the cross so that we would not live in darkness but could be forgiven and live as ambassadors of light.  Thank You Holy Spirit.  We receive You today.  Please come into our lives and be with us forever.    Thank you, Lord Jesus.  Amen.

"Let your light so shine before others that they may see your good works and glorify our Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:16).

And so we receive God’s light—not just the flickering of candles but the eternal promise of God’s light in us now and hope of eternal life forever.

Angels, from the realms of glory, 

Wing your flight o'er all the earth; 

Ye, who sang creation's story, 

Now proclaim Messiah's birth: 

Come and worship, 

Come and worship, 

Worship Christ, the new-born King.

Shepherds in the field abiding, 

Watching o'er your flocks by night, 

God with man is now residing; 

Yonder shines the infant Light: Refrain

Sages, leave your contemplations, 

Brighter visions beam afar:

Seek the great Desire of nations; 

Ye have seen his natal star: Refrain

Saints before the altar bending, 

Watching long in hope and fear,

Suddenly the Lord, descending,

In his temple shall appear: Refrain
