More about Sara Lyn Baril:
Sara Lyn (Bissett) Baril was raised in southern Alberta, Canada and started composing music at a very young age. At 16, she began to score some of her compositions which were subsequently performed by talented friends at various functions. Her music has been frequently used over the last 15 years in many church programs (firesides), including sacrament meetings, and occasionally the stage. She has composed music for a Christmas cantata, entitled "Glorious Is His Name", performed in 1999 in Raymond, Alberta and in 2004 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and music for and LDS Stake play entitled "Finding My Way" in 2003, also in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In the fall of 2006, when her black binder of printed music began to burst at the seams and after much encouragement from people in her stake, she began publishing her songs in local bookstores. The ball began to roll very quickly after she sent a few songs down to well-known LDS music producer, Greg Hansen, and by spring 2007, her debut album, "Thy Healing Hands - Songs of Comfort and Peace" was released. In 2015, Sara chose to release a second album, Come To Know Him, which includes an additional 13 songs about Jesus Christ and His gospel. This collection includes many songs written from her young adult years, as well as several new compositions. Both albums include professional LDS vocals from talent such as Daniel Beck, David Osmond, April Meservy, Julie Rose, Dallyn Vail Bayles, Keith McKay Evans, Sara Bethany Ham, and others. Sara enjoys writing inspirational songs and choir numbers, although she has also composed children's music and occasionally a country or love song. She has also written various songs in support of the annual auxiliary themes within the LDS Church. This music has been sung and loved by the Young Women, Primary and Relief Society groups in areas she has lived and served. Sara has found her musical styles to expand over the years and enjoys writing about many topics, but writing songs about the Savior has always been her most fulfilling endeavour. She and her husband, Mark, have five children and reside in southern Alberta. When she's not writing music, she's busy catching up on house work and attending her children's ball games. She currently serves as the Young Women's president in her ward. More sheet music, mp3 downloads, CDs and songbooks at www.saralynbaril.com
Song background:

In connection with the #LIGHTtheWORLD service campaign last year through the LDS Church, I felt inspired to write a song with the same title. It was one of my favourites of all time to write. The lyrics flowed in the creation and the melody is one I hum often. It can be performed as a Christmas song, but makes no reference specifically to Christmas and can be used year round.

Lyrics: "LIGHT THE WORLD" <br/> <br/>Words and music by Sara Lyn Baril <br/> <br/>So many wait for the light of day, <br/>Searching for the truth; who will show them the way? <br/>As those who heed the Savior’s call, <br/>We’ll show His love and bring light to all. <br/> <br/>In a world where there’s darkness, <br/>In a world with night, <br/>We can offer His peace, <br/>We can lead with His light <br/>Sharing all that is good <br/>When we teach as Christ would. <br/>We can light the world. <br/> <br/>So many wait for someone to care; <br/>Maybe they wonder if God’s even there. <br/>As those who’ve found the peace that Christ brings <br/>We’ll be his hands at all times, in all things. <br/> <br/>In a world where there’s suffering, <br/>We can ease the pain. <br/>Lift the burdens we see and <br/>Bring hope once again. <br/>Sharing all that is good, <br/>When we serve as Christ would. <br/>We can light the world. <br/> <br/>The pure love of Christ will change darkness to light <br/>And answer each cry and each prayer. <br/>It heals every wound and dries every tear. <br/>When we act in His name, it’s as if He were here. <br/> <br/>In a world where the lonely, <br/>Seek to find one friend. <br/>In a world where there’s heartache, <br/>We’ll help sorrow end. <br/>Sharing all that is good, <br/>When we love as Christ would. <br/>We can light the world. <br/>Sharing all that is good, <br/>As we live as Christ would. <br/>We will light the world. <br/> <br/>Copyright © 2016 by Sara Lyn Baril.
