My Voice: If There Was Glory……

If there was Glory
Shining through my eyes
As I looked around
As I looked on you
Wouldn’t I want
To go on out
And look on all
I could possibly see?
Lord, let Your light shine
Let Your Glory shine
Through me

If there was Glory
Shining through my words
As I spoke kindness
As I spoke love
Wouldn’t I want
To go on out
And speak to all
I could possibly meet?
Lord, let Your light shine
Let Your Glory shine
Through me

If there was Glory
Shining through my fingers
As I worked to improve
As I worked to help
Wouldn’t I want
To go on out
And give help to all
I could possibly assist?
Lord, let Your light shine
Let Your Glory shine
Through me

Lord, let Your light shine
Let Your Glory shine
For all to see
And know it is not me

’14“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

’13“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

‘3“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
5Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
6Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
7Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
8Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
9Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.
10Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.’ ~Matthew 5:14-16, 13, 3-12
