Song Description

As we lift up others, we lift up ourselves/ As we lift up ourselves, we lift up others.

Lyrics


Joseph found Jesse
when he was several minutes old
in a damp abandoned building
in the dark December cold
he was left there by his mother
she was a poor little frightened girl
all alone in this world

Joseph raised Jesse
just like he was his own
he said "don't blame your mom,
she didn't know what to do -
she didn't know
the truth about you:

You are the light of the world
God's precious one
Your light is brighter than a thousand suns
A beacon shining through the night
Light of the world

Jesse met Shelly
He loved her from the start
She filled that empty space
That Jesse's mom left in his heart
First step down a new road
She was gonna be his wife
They'd start a new life

They dreamed of having children
And a home of their own
He'd hold them in his arms
And kiss away their tears
He'd touch their hair
And whisper in their ears:

You are the light of the world
God's precious one
Your light is brighter than a thousand suns
A beacon shining through the night
Light of the world

A young man stabbed Jesse
For the small change in his hand
He said, "give me all your money.
I was born to be bad..."

Jesse was dying
But he never lost his smile
He said, "go on, son
I'll be gone in a little while
but before you go
I want you to know:



You are the light of the world
God's precious one
Your light is brighter than a thousand suns
A beacon shining through the night
Light of the world
God's precious one
Your light is brighter
Than a thousand suns
A beacon shining through the night
Light of the world
