Matthew 5:14-16

14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that1 they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Hymn : TLH 294 st. 1,4: O Word of God Incarnate Hymnary.org link

1. O Word of God Incarnate, 
O Wisdom from on high, 
O Truth unchanged, unchanging, 
O Light of our dark sky, 
We praise Thee for the radiance 
That from the hallowed page, 
A lantern to our footsteps 
Shines on from age to age. 

4. O make thy church, dear Saviour, 
A lamp of purest gold, 
To bear before the nations 
Thy true light, as of old. 
O teach thy wand’ring pilgrims 
By this their path to trace, 
Till, clouds and darkness ended, 
They see thee face to face.
