Verse 1
In my heart shines Light
that’s brighter than a sunrise!
It is Jesus! It is Jesus!
Never can the works of darkness
with its bold lies,
Stop the radiance of this Light
within my heart.

It is Jesus, It is Jesus!
He’s the Son of God!
The Sun of righteousness!
When the lights of day and night
fade in their glory
Jesus Christ, is still
the Bright and Morning Star.

Verse 2
Who has called us out of darkness
to sing praises?
It is Jesus! It is Jesus!
For He opens eyes, forgives our sins,
and saves us.
So proclaim the Light,
the Way, the Truth, the Life!

Verse 3
For He changes not,
He’s not like shifting shadows.
It is Jesus! It is Jesus!
He will be your strength and comfort
in life’s sorrows,
Hand in hand He’ll light your path
to heaven’s home!

I'd like to hear that German song. Any chance you can find it and put it on your blog? I studied German in high school and can still sing some songs in German. Great language.

Thank you all for visiting and sharing bloggy friendship! Much appreciated.
Warren, I do have a copy of the song. Not sure how to get it to you!
I scanned it and I could see if I could send it to you by E-mail. Just changed providers and can't send - only receive E-mail. Will try to work on that issue tomorrow.
