Light of the World—TLC version

Some of you know that I wrote a song earlier this year to go along with our church’s theme for 2016, “Light of the World.” We’ve sung it a number of times as a congregation, and I think it’s catching on.

But we haven’t sung it like this before.

In July I was honored to speak at the Teen Leadership Conference hosted by Clarks Summit University (formerly Baptist Bible College in Clarks Summit, PA). The worship director, David Harris, and I have been friends for a few years, so I sent him “Light of the World” to see what his band might come up with.

What they did was amazing. I absolutely love it, so I recorded it on my phone the last time we sang it that week. Wish the quality were better, but you’ll get the idea. If I manage to get a better recording, I’ll post it.

My thanks to the band (David Harris, Kyle Sparks, John Mark Amos, Megan Miller, Katherine Grosvenor, Matt Snyder, and Luke Peterson) and to the audio-visual team (Jack Coleman, Ryan Buchanan, and Jesse Dreyer) for their work.

And of course to D-wight for the invitation to speak. It’s always a delight.

You can listen to their version of “Light of the World” here. And if you’re interested in singing it in your church, you can download the lead sheet here.
