Light Everlasting Sheet Music
Written by composer Stephen Bigger
Light Everlasting is perfect for the 21st century worship choir. This piece features an opening and stand-alone modern chant, which may be used as an introit with or without the accompanying hymn. The driving, Celtic 6/8 feel is easy to teach and sing for any congregation. The lyrics speak of God’s eternal love and light for a dark world. May be used for Easter, Advent, or anytime during the year. Custom arrangements, performance tracks, charts, and orchestrations are available by contacting Stephen Bigger.
Light Everlasting is also available on Lights on the Horizon a collection of songs for modern worship band. You can also purchase the full compact disk on cdBaby, iTunes, and Amazon.
Light Everlasting Lyrics
Light Everlasting, shine on us
Take all our darkness, bring us life.
Lord of the moon and stars, Creator of all hope, remake us.
Be Thou our God, be now our Light.
O God of mercy, God of grace, we bow before Your throne.
We sing Your praise and seek Your face
And worship You alone.
For only You are holy, Lord, in everything You do.
O Light Eternal, shine forever, show the way to You.
O Christ, You are the sacrifice, the Holy Lamb of God.
You gave Your life to pay the price, poured out Your precious blood.
But death could not You power contain,
The grave could not control;
O majesty and miracle, You made this sinner whole.
O depth of love and joy divine,
Be now our Light! Amen!
