I have Seen the Light

Though I used to sing this song as a solo years ago, it's really meant to be sung as a trio by three men, usually representing the three wise men.  I realize it isn't yet Epiphany, but considering I only have two days left in the month for seasonal music videos, I thought I'd try to squeeze this one in for today.  The song is pretty as a solo, but the harmonies of the trio, especially when done well, are beautiful.  Unfortunately, it's somewhat difficult to find a good video on YouTube of the trio that doesn't fiddle with the harmonies or excessively embellish them.  I've found one with a good tenor, and one with a good bass; sadly they aren't in the same video.  This video is the one with the good tenor; it's a little more countrified than I normally go for, but the harmonies are clean and effective, and the lyrics are still cool.


Happy (early) Epiphany!

I Have Seen the Light

I was a seeker for light in a dark world,
I looked for truth but settled for lies.
I had been blinded, I couldn't see
Till the Star in Bethlehem's sky opened my eyes.

I have seen the Light shining in the darkness,
Bursting through the shadows, delivering the dawn.
I have seen the Light whose holy name is Jesus,
His kingdom is forever; He reigns on Heaven's throne!

There in a manger, an innocent baby;
Who could believe He was the One;
I can believe it, I know it's true;
He changed my life; He is the light; He is God's Son!

I have seen the Light shining in the darkness,
Bursting through the shadows, delivering the dawn.
I have seen the Light whose holy name is Jesus,
His kingdom is forever; He reigns on Heaven's throne!
We must tell the world what we`ve seen today in Bethlehem!
He`s the promised King; we bow down and worship Him!
Worship Christ The King!

I have seen the Light shining in the darkness,
Bursting through the shadows, delivering the dawn.
I have seen the Light whose holy name is Jesus,
His kingdom is forever; He reigns on Heaven's throne!
