He's my light
The man of Galilee
And I know
He's got his arm around me
I'm glad to say
That his love is ever true
How I and mine
Are his possesions
And he'll forgive
All my transgressions
He died for me
Like no other could do

He's my light
My guiding light
I don't have to worry
Day or night
By his light
He makes my pathway bright
All the way
Each step of the way

Oh he paid that awful price
That I might have
A right to the Tree of Life
And I shall dwell with him
Forever
He is my light
Oh, my guiding light

    It means that in this world of darkness chaos, that he is our light. And if we love and abide, he will keep our pathway bright.
