Chorus 1
I wanna be in the light
As You are in the light
I wanna shine like the stars
In the heavens
Lord be my light
And be my salvation
All I want is to be
In the light of love
All I want is
To be in the light
Verse 1
I keep trying to find a life
On my own apart from You
I am the king of excuses
I've got one
For every selfish thing I do
Verse 2
What's going on inside of me
I despise my own behavior
This only serves
To confirm my suspicions
That I'm still a man
In need of a Savior
Verse 3
The disease of the self
Runs through my blood
It's a cancer fatal to my soul
Every attempt
On my behalf has failed
To bring the sickness
Under control
Chorus 2
I wanna be in the light
As You are in the light
Lead me into the presence
Of the Father
I will follow right behind
True love I will find
All I want is to be
In the light of love
All I want is to be in the light
