Song background:

I read in the New Testament, "Ye are all of the light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness." 1 Thessalonians 5.5. I remembered the prophecy that in the last days we would not be able to depend on "borrowed light," but we need to have our own testimonies, and our own light. This song helps you know how to do that. Written for Young Women's trio (SSA) but can also be sung as a vocal solo by singing only the melody.

Lyrics: MAKE YOUR OWN LIGHT <br/>VERSE 1: <br/>You are children of God, you are children of light, <br/>You are not of the dark, you are not of the night. <br/>You were given a beacon of heavenly light <br/>In a place in your mind where you know what is right. <br/>CHORUS: <br/>Light up the way for those in the darkness, <br/>Light up the way for those lost in the night. <br/>When life is darkest then make your own light! <br/>Light up the night! Make your own light! <br/>VERSE 2: <br/>You may ask what to do when a match can’t be found, <br/>And the candle is spent and it’s dark all around. <br/>You can sing from your heart the most beautiful song, <br/>You can send up a prayer, you can make right a wrong. <br/>VERSE 3: <br/>You can do acts so kind, you can speak words of love, <br/>You can help people learn of their father above. <br/>When surrounded by shadows of coldness and night, <br/>You can make your own light! You can make your own light! <br/> <br/> <br/>Copyright@Feb 2017 by Adrienne Foster Potter <br/>
