In the Light
by dc Talk



Yeah, 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

Tell me, 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

I wanna be in the Light
As You are in the Light
I wanna shine like the stars in the Heavens
Oh, Lord, be my Light and be my salvation
‘Cause all I want is to be in the Light
All I want is to be in the Light

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

Tell me, 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

I wanna be in the Light
As You are in the Light
I wanna shine like the stars in the Heavens
Oh, Lord, be my Light and be my salvation
‘Cause all I want is to be in the Light
All I want is to be in the Light

Honesty becomes me
(There’s nothing left to lose)
The secrets that did run me
(In Your presence are defused)
Pride has no position(And riches have no worth)
And the fame that once did cover me
(Has been sentenced to this earth)
Has been sentenced to this earth

Tell me, 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

I wanna be in the Light
As You are in the Light
I wanna shine like the stars in the Heavens
Oh, Lord, be my Light and be my salvation
‘Cause all I want is to be in the Light
All I want is to be in the Light
