All earth was dark until you spoke

All earth was dark until you spoke,
then all was light and all was peace.
Yet still, O God, so many wait
to see the flame of love released.

Light to the world, O Light of man,
kindle in us a mighty flame,
till every heart, consumed by love,
shall rise to praise your holy name.

2. In Christ you gave your gift of life
to save us from the depth of night.
O, come and set our spirits free
and draw us to your perfect light.

3. Where there is fear may we bring joy
and healing to a world in pain.
Lord, build your kingdom through our lives
till Jesus walks this earth again.

4. O, burn in us that we may burn
with love that triumphs in despair.
And touch our lives with such a fire
that souls may search and find you there.
