Okay, there’s nobody out there cursing or fighting just now, the cats are fed, and now let our souls be lit by Jesus Christ Our Lord, the Light of the World–the true Light that lighteth every man that cometh into the world (John 1:9). This is the Light the darkness can’t put out–not even the darkness of this evil age.
Written by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

Beautiful. Thank you, Lee. Maddy has one of those voices that really lends itself to solo. And the scenes of God’s creation stir the imagination to peek into His splendor.
I also love the Carnival Band’s 18th-century style.
Great hymn for a choir!! We need more Charles Wesleys today!
For some reason I just can’t get enough of this hymn. I kept whistling it as I rode my bike today.
