There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him.He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light.
The great Forever, the Creator who shines in the darknessCan be knownAnd the voice of men can point to him.
The Word of God who lights up the lives of peopleIs knowableHuman lives reveal him.
Before all things he wasAnd creation knows himHe’s the light that ignites the minds of the restless, the wanderers
No human can embody this Word, not shine brighter than heYet God desires the Word to be knownAnd faulty human mouths can shout his name.
