My favorite Charlie Peacock song - In the light

How can you light candles for the One who has lit the stars?  Light the candle in your heart! 
- Guru Nanak

My favorite Charlie Peacock song ... In the light ... Absolutely lovely live recording.




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

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 saviour

CHORUS
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 my salvation
All I want is to be in the light of love
All I want is to be in the light

The disease of the self runs through my blood
Like a cancer fatal to the soul
Every attempt on my behalf has failed
To bring the sickness under control

Chorus

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 will find
All I want is to be in the light of love
All I want is to be in the light

Is there such a thing as a man of peace?
If there is, then a man of peace I want to be
I will need your help if I`m ever to be that
If i`m to lay down, lay down, lay down
Then I`ll lay my life for my brothers and sisters
I will nees your help, Jesus I need your light
Forever shining bright
