Advent - Christingle / Christmas song

All-age
It's difficult to find singable songs for a Christingle service. With the reissue of Tony Christie's Amarillo, everyone knows the tune and this might be a fun way to finish a service - perhaps marching down the aisle in threes, arm in arm...

Show me the way to shine for Jesus - the song

Though the shadows gather
There’s a light that shines forever.
From the bright beginning,
Till the day the earth stops its spinning.
And I feel that brightness
Rising up in me.
Making me the person
That I am meant to be.

Show me the way to shine for Jesus!
Let my love light up this Christmas.
Changing dark to light around us.
Oh sweet Jesus, shine in me!
(x2)

Sha lai lai etc

All the light and glory
Turned into the Christmas story.
See the darkened stable
Lit up with a newly born baby.
And the Son still shines now
Turning night to day.
Loving, healing, saving -
He makes me want to say:

Show me the way to shine for Jesus!
Let my love light up this Christmas
Changing dark to light around us
Oh sweet Jesus, shine in me
(x2)

Shai lai lai etc
