Light and Love

"O send out Thy light and Thy truth: let them lead me… Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy" (Psalm 43:3,4).  "Let not mercy and truth forsake thee… Trust in the LORD... He giveth grace unto the lowly" (Proverbs 3:3,5,34).  "The iniquity of Israel shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Judah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon them whom I reserve" (Jeremiah 50:20).  "When He had by Himself purged our sins, [He] sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high" (Hebrews 1:3). 

The light and truth of God are sent
To draw us to our Savior's cross
With grace that leads us to repent
And find our sins are purged as dross. 

His grace and truth shall save the lowly
And keep us trusting in our Savior. 
His light and love shall make us holy
In thought, in word, and in behavior. 

The days shall come when Christ will look
And find no sins in Israel,
For as the Lamb of God He took
The sins of those He saved from hell. 

Lord, thank You for Your light and love
Which lead us onward as we're urged
To set our hearts on things above,
Rejoicing that our sins are purged.
