This is a stanza from one of my favorite hymns, “Christ Be Our Light,” a hymn that has left me with tears in my eyes on numerous occasions, happy and otherwise. Christ is my guiding light. On the brightest of days He gets all the glory and through my darkest nights of life he is my beacon of hope. At Christmastime, light in all forms – candlelight, tree lights, lights along roof lines, flickering firelight, star and moon light, light in the eyes of others -to me symbolize the light of Christ in our lives.
Let your light so shine – just as His light shines in the darkness.
