Christ Our Light

The church is silent, dark and still,

With emptiness that’s soon to fill.

The altar is graced with lilies white,

A pure and most refreshing sight.

 –

The time has come; we turn to see

The flame that burns so steadily,

The Easter candle, soaring high

A light that will not ever die.

 –

 For Christ our light, it signifies

As right before our very eyes

The flame begins to grow and spread,

Igniting hope while crushing dread.

– 

Because our Lord is truly here,

We have not any need to fear.

And we know that in this hour,

 Sin and death have lost their power.

– 

The church is lit with glowing flame,

And now the darkness has no claim.

We’re seized with truth we’ve always known,

A light that comes from Christ alone.

– 

The Easter candle, burning bright

Reminds us of our Savior’s might,

His death and rising from the grave

For love of those He wished to save.

 –

Alleluia!
