Shine, Jesus, Shine

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.

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.
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.
---
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.
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.
---
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.
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.
