prayer-lift-up-eyes

Our Lord is light, eternal life,
To you we lift our eyes in longing
To live. Give wisdom by your word,
We bid you abide in us, to bear
Our load of sin, our weight of self.

From us let Christ shine out, increase
Among the nations, his blessed name
Confessed, in faith, both now, in the fight
For peace, and within the walls of onyx
And pearl and gold, in the chorus of God.
