Shine, Jesus, Shine

Full Text

Shine, Jesus, shine,
fill this land with the Father's glory,
blaze, Spirit, blaze,
set our hearts on fire;
flow, river, flow,
flood the nations with grace and mercy,
send forth your word, Lord,
and let there be light.

1 Lord, the light of your love is shining
in the midst of the darkness shining;
Jesus, Light of the World, shine upon us,
set us free by the truth you now bring us.
Shine on me, shine on me. [Refrain]

2 Lord I come to your awesome presence,
from the shadows into your radiance;
by the blood I may enter Your brightness,
search me, try me, consume all my darkness.
Shine on me, shine on me. [Refrain]

3 As we gaze on your kingly brightness
so our faces display Your likeness;
ever changing from glory to glory,
mirrored here may our lives tell your story.
Shine on me, shine on me. [Refrain]
