lyrics

You stood on the mountain; you took to the stage
And your words spilled like ink on an open page
A light from the heavens come down to the dark world of men
You spoke to my spirit; I hungered to hear it, to see you again

But I might have misheard you or maybe I don't get the joke
'Cause now you're sending me out with no staff and one cloak
And I'm happy to follow but you ask me to lead
And scatter my handful of seed

We are the light of the world
How can I be the light of the world?
I stumble in dimness and dust
And my eyes can't adjust to the light of the world

You sit at the table, there's bread in your hands
And you give me a picture I can understand
Saying 'this is my body broken for you'
Then you look up to heaven, break the bread open and tear it in two

But I read in your letter a line that I can't figure out
Now I'm a little bit anxious and a little bit proud
'Cause it's another reversal, another card up your sleeve
And it takes all my faith to believe

We are the body of Christ
How can I be the body of Christ?
I am but body and soul
But together we become the whole body of Christ

And I don't understand it, but I can't turn away
So don't save my seat on the fence
'Cause something keeps spurring me on this adventure
I've taken for granted the gifts that you gave
And the promises made to me of all that is mine

Make me shine like the light of the world
As you are the light of the world
Piercing the dimness and dust
Let the traveler trust in the light of the world
