We must work the works of the One who sent me
while it is day;
night is coming when no one can work.
As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
This is your day, your life.
Night will come, when you are no more.
But today you are God's light in the world.
This is the time to shine,
to love, to forgive and ask forgiveness,
to speak for justice, to give yourself
to the mending of the world.
The coming of night need not frighten you.
But let it keep you awake
while it is day.
