Christ is the light that pierces every heart.
It descends to the plains, valleys and rivers deep.
The light brings forth wisdom that will never depart.
It will awaken those who are spiritually asleep.
Christ is the light that changes people’s thoughts.
It encompasses cities, countries global.
We look at our old ways and what we are taught.
Life is now cheerful, our faith is no longer doubtful.
Christ is the light that redeems humanity.
It is a flowing river that knows no boundaries;
Gone is our blindness and sinful frailty.
We are inheritors of God’s plentiful bounties.
Christ is the light that renews the Church’s calling.
Teaches love and pierces the stubbornness of man.
Praise and prayer is never ending.
The Church triumphant our purified souls demand.
