Hymn for Lent (Day 35): I want to walk as a child of the light

Today is the feast of Gregory the Illuminator, and the hymn d’jour is based loosely on the appointed Gospel.

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.

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.

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.

Words: Kathleen Thomerson, 1966
