Though the world is filled darkness, you must arise as light. Though the nations are immersed in thick darkness, we must project our light into the nations. The people may be in gross dark, there our light must begin to shine. The Lord has arisen in us and has given us His light that we may shine upon the earth as light. The glory of the Lord will be made manifest only if you choose to shine. So, arise, shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. Amen.
