Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the June 16th edition of Sounds of Home!
I Am the Light of the World
“I am the light of the world! You people come and follow me!”
If you follow and love you’ll learn the mystery of what you were meant to do and be.
When the song of the angels is stilled, when the star in the sky is gone,
When the sages and the shepherds have found their way home,
the work of Christmas is begun: Refrain
To find the lost and lonely one, to heal the broken soul with love,
To feed the hungry children with warmth and good food,
To feel the earth below, the sky above! Refrain
To free the prisoner from all chains, to make the powerful care,
To rebuild the nations with strength of good will,
to see all God’s children everywhere! Refrain
To bring hope to every task you do, to dance at a baby’s new birth,
To make music in…. an old person’s heart,
and sing to the colors of the earth! Refrain
Music: Jim Strathdee
Text: Jim Strathdee, based on a poem by Howard Thurman
