So the candle’s gone out, it’s been soaked by the rain
And the cold winds of doubt have extinguished the flame
The lighthouse sits idly in darkness again
As the ship sails ocean alone
The sun’s frozen over and all has gone cold
And the fires of the past have been bought and then sold
And the light on the porch is abandoned and old
So the child cannot find his way home

Arisen
Forbidden
We keep our candles hidden
Born leaders
That follow, floating with the tide

“You are the light of the world,” He said
But we’ve blown out our candles
And left men for dead
Singing “we are the light of the world, He said”
As the darkness descends on us all
If we were the light of the world today
Would we hide in the shadows
And scare them away?
Are we the light of the world
Or are we failing to answer the call?

[Lead Break: Val]

Men love the darkness
Much more than the light
For their deeds can be kept out of mind
Out of sight
And the line has eroded
Between wrong and right
Like it’s all relative after all
To stand like a wall and resist the temptation
To sell ourselves out
For hollow acclimation
And cheapen the message
A weakened foundation
Revealing the cracks in the wall

No power
No glory
No one to tell their story
No wonder
It’s all unraveling

“You are the light of the world,” He said
But we’ve blown out our candles
And left men for dead
Singing “we are the light of the world, He said”
As the darkness descends on us all
If we were the light of the world today
Would we hide in the shadows and just look away?
Are we the light of the world
Or are we failing to answer the call?

[Solo: Val]

To lift up the fallen
To stand for the downtrodden
The poor and the hurting
Are our ministry

“You are the light of the world,” He said
But we’ve blown out our candles
And left men for dead
Singing “we are the light of the world, He said”
As the darkness descends on us all
If we were the light of the world today
Would we hide in the shadows and darken the way?
Are we the light of the world
Or are we failing to answer the call?
