All Saints’ Day Hymn
Our church choir have prepared a hymn for All Saints’ Day, recorded individually in the safety of their homes to create this singing together hymn, broadcast at our online and gathered services on Sunday 1st November.
At this time of year, we give thanks for those people who have been like lights to us, both those who lived long ago, and those living now. We ask for help to shine like lights ourselves to help others. As the autumnal night draws in and it starts to feel wintry, we are reminded that God is with us in dark and difficult times, when we are sad or ‘in the dark’. The Bible calls Jesus the “Light of the World” and says that “the light shone in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it”.
You might like to light a candle at home when listening to this song as a reminder of Jesus, light of the world shining in the midst of the darkness.
