He Brought Me Light


He Brought Me Light

Music for Children, Solos to Sing, Submitted Music (2007-2011)

I climbed the hillside, I walked by the sea,

But could not imagine things I could not see.

What is the color of green?

When men speak of amber skies, what do they mean?

And the face of my newborn, warm to my touching,

Was real to me only in dreams.

 

Each day I sat there, alone at the gate,

Depending on others, resigned to my fate.

What is this thing men call sight?

And what do they mean when they talk about light?

When I heard of the healer, hope stirred within me.

And He was there by my side!

 

I lived in darkness, alone and afraid

For I saw no difference between night and day.

Though I desired to believe

The sun, moon and stars were such mysteries to me.

Then I heard He was coming.  Would He see my reaching?

Could there be a miracle for me?

 

He brought me light, He gave me sight,

He showed me beauty I never had seen.

He heard my cries, He touched my eyes,

Spoke gentle words with the power of a King!

 

Blind from my birth He was the first

To banish my endless night.

He gave me hope, gave me new life,

When He brought me light.

 

He was Jesus the Christ,

Source of Truth, Lord of Light,

The first face I saw when He opened my eyes and

 

He brought me light, He gave me sight,

He showed me beauty I never had seen.

He heard my cries, He touched my eyes,

Spoke gentle words with power of a King!  

 

Blind from my birth, He was the first

To banish my endless night.

He gave me hope, gave me new life,

When He brought me light.
