Closing Hymn: I Want to Walk As A Child of the Light, STJ 95 (words below)

Verse 1:  I want to walk as a child of the light.  I want to follow Jesus.  God set the stars to give light to the world.  The star of my life is Jesus.

Refrain:  In him there is no darkness at all.  The night and the day are both alike.  The Lamb in the light of the city of God.  Shine in my heart, Lord Jesus.

Verse 2:  I want to see the brightness of God.  I want to look at Jesus.  Clear Sun of Righteousness, shine on my path, and show me the way to the Father.

Benediction: by Katie
