This week’s “Song of the Week” is The Light In Me by Brandon Heath on his latest album, Leaving Eden. The Light In Me is a wonderful song about how God is ultimately our source for living, and the One who put the “Light” in us. The chords and lyrics are below. I hope you enjoy the song!

Song: The Light In Me
Artist: Brandon Heath
Album: Leaving Eden
Key: C

Intro: C - Am - F - C  (Piano plays: G-F-E-D during each of the intro chords)

Verse 1:
(C)                   Am
My life before You
                      F
I was a flame burning down
              C
I was burning out
                        Am
But You knew me better
                          F
For You there was never a doubt
                      G
Not since You gave me life
              Am
Something was different
              F
I knew it the instant
                     C
You put the light in me

Chorus:
(C)
The spark

The shot to the heart
            Am
You are the hope that leads me

Out of the dark
             F
You let Your love shine down
            G
So that the world can see
                     F
You put the light in me
           Am                    C
The light, You put the light in me
           G                    F
The light, You put the light in me
           Am                    C
The light, You put the light in me
           G                    C
The light, You put the light in me

Verse 2:
(C)                Am
You are the Maker
                         F
You tell the sun when to rise
                      C
I'm just a house on a hill
                         Am
But You make me brighter
                          F
Than all the stars in the sky
                     G
Keep me from growing dim
                  Am
‘Cause in Your perfection
               F
I'm just a reflection
          C               G
So pull me closer to You
                  Am
I'll catch like a fire
                  F
And I'll hold You higher
                                C
‘Cause You put the light in me

Bridge:
F             Am                C
I'll raise it high, I'll let it show
                   G
From the roof tops down to the 
          F
streets below
           Am                  C
In day and night, You will be known
             G
And all will see
                     C
You put the light in me
Am   F                              C
-------- Cause you put the light in me

    This song really touch my heart this week, hope you like it:
    Brenton Brown – Our God Is Mercy

    In the midst of my exams and problems with doubts, hopelessness and loneliness this song reminded me of God’s love and His Father heart. I am still learning that some problems are to big for me to face on my own and that is actually a good thing. It means I need to look and trust in God.

    Colton I really want to thank you for your website, it really has been a blessing and much of what you have posted and written sticks with me today and has helped me in my walk with God. Thank you for allowing the Lord to use you.

    Regards
    Hugo
