The Light of the World is Jesus

     F                          C7              F
The whole world was lost in the darkness of sin.
The Light of the world is Jesus.
     F                       C7    F
Like sunshine at noonday His glory shone in.
                          C7 F
The light of the world is Jesus.


C                       G7          C
Come to the Light, ‘tis shining for thee!
                             G7   C7
Sweetly the Light has dawned upon me;
 F                   Bb
Once I was lost, but now I can see.
 F                        C7 F
The Light of the world is Jesus.

No darkness have we who in Jesus abide.
We walk in the Light when we follow our Guide.
No need of the sunlight in heaven we’re told.
The Lamb is the Light in the city of Gold.
