The sun comes up, and we know it is day.
We can see things that were hidden in the dark.
Light is a metaphor for mental comprehension:
When we understand something,
we are said to be “enlightened.”
We say that you are the light of the world, Lord,
Light is a wonderful experience, Lord.
when we grasp the significance of your
coming to earth and the difference
it makes in our lives.
Open our eyes to your light, O Lord.
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.”
Then Jesus cried aloud: “Whoever believes in me believes not in me but in him who sent me. And whoever sees me sees him who sent me. I have come as light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in darkness.”
