Since we’re on a hymn kick this week let’s take a look at another favorite that fits Ephesians 5:8-9 “I want to walk as a child of the light” is a hymn that makes a great prayer complete with a refrain of praise, and verse that point us directly to Jesus.
1 I want to walk as a child of the light;
I want to follow Jesus.
God set the stars to give light to the world;
The star of my life is Jesus.
In him there is no darkness at all;
The night and the day are both alike.
The Lamb is the light of the city of God.
Shine in my heart, Lord Jesus.
2 I want to see the brightness of God;
I want to look at Jesus.
Clear Sun of Righteousness, shine on my path
And show me the way to the Father. [Refrain]
3 I’m looking for the coming of Christ;
I want to be with Jesus.
When we have run with patience the race,
We shall know the joy of Jesus. [Refrain]
Dear Jesus, Thank you for shining in my life! Amen.
