Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12 ESV)
Hymn ELH 171:1,2 O Word of God Incarnate
O Word of God incarnate,
O Wisdom from on high,
O Truth unchanged, unchanging,
O Light of our dark sky,
We praise You for the radiance
That from the hallowed page,
A lamp unto our footsteps,
Shines on from age to age.
The Church from You, dear Master,
Received the gift divine;
And still that light is lifted
O’er all the earth to shine.
It is the chart and compass
That, all life’s voyage through,
Mid mists and rocks and quicksands
Still guides, O Christ, to You.
Jesus, Savior of all, forgive my sins and help me to follow You all the days of my life. Amen.
