John 1.1-18

Jesus, the Word of God became one of us. He is the source of all life and truth.

O send forth your light and your truth; let these be my guide. Let them bring me to your holy mountain to the place where you dwell.” (Psalm 43:3)

The Word Is Light

In the beginning was the Word;
The Word was God; in Him He is.
Through Him, all creation has stirred;
The source and breath of life are His.

His life is the great light that shines
In darkness for the human race:
In Him all that is truth aligns;
From Him we receive grace on grace.

In time, He came among His own,
Becoming flesh to dwell with them:
In the world, He was not known;
He came to save, not to condemn.

For those who hear His gentle call,
And believe in His holy name,
He lifts them to Himself in all
As God’s children – for this He came.

The glory of the Father’s Son
Reveals His Truth – the Three are One.

May the Light of the World shine on our interior darknesses, cleanse us, strengthen us, and transform us into this light.
