For the light

Suggested tune Calon Lan (268G)

For the light of days remembered
which has brought us to this place,
and the light of love and justice
for the wider human race;
for the light which burns and blazes
to inspire us to our best,
and the light which in its fading
calls us to our nightly rest;

As a beacon lit in mem’ry of all those who came before
and a light of hope for those who
yet will enter through our doors;
as a symbol of our values
and to mark our common aim,
as we gather here in worship,
let us light our chalice flame.
