Sunday Sing-Along



This is a pretty old video...so it's not the best quality. Nowadays, I hardly listen to Christian music on the radio. It just doesn't seem like it has a message, like this song. I remember turning this song up loud and singing in my car. I love this video because it shows so many of my favorites in Christian music. If you are a fan of 80's Christian music, see if you recogonize any of these artists...




Lyrics:

Carry the Light
by Twila Paris
from the 1989 album "Carry the Light"

In this world of darkness,
We are given light.
Hope for all the dying.
How will they know?
How will they know
That Jesus loves them,
And He died to save them?

Carry the light!
Carry the light!
Go and tell the children they are precious in His sight!
Carry the light!
Carry the light!
Go and preach the gospel till there is no more night!
In the name of Jesus Christ,
Carry the light!

Count them by the millions,
Blinded slaves to sin.
But inside they are dying.
How will they know?
How will they know
That Jesus loves them,
And His heart is breaking?

Carry the light!
Carry the light!
Go and tell the children they are precious in His sight!
Carry the light!
Carry the light!
Go and preach the gospel till there is no more night!
In the name of Jesus Christ,
Carry the light!

Go ye into all the world
Go ye into all the world

Carry the light!
Carry the light!
Go and tell the children they are precious in His sight!
Carry the light!
Carry the light!
Go and preach the gospel till there is no more night!
In the name of Jesus Christ,
Carry the light!
In the name of Jesus Christ,
Carry the light!
Carry the light!
Carry the light!

Wow, Bobbi! That is soooo 80's! :D Although I grew up knowing that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and was raised on the 3rd day, I did not have a personal relationship with Him until I was married in 1989 (I think my spiritual bday was in 1990 though...I'll have to look it up). Sadly, I was an M*T*V teen so many of these faces do not ring a bell for me. However, I think I see Michael W. Smith in there. I've always loved his music. Oh yeah, and Bebe & Cece too. If anyone else is in there that I 'know' they are just too young for me to recognize. Great choice of song for this week! Hugs to you have have a wonderful week in the Lord!

I love that song! It took me 3 years to talk our adult choir director into teaching it to them, and it ended up being the best, most meaningful song they ever sang. After that he started trying a few new things. Of course, it was 1995 by then! lol.

Wow! The 80's hair & clothes...what were we thinking???

Love to you, girl!!!
