Let Jesus Shine



If we had no pain
And it never rained
How would we grow

If we never faced
 Any difficult place
What good could show
How would the world know
 The difference Jesus can make

Let Him shine through
All of our pain
All of the hardships this life can bring
Let His love shine
Shine through our trials
Shine through our struggles
Our troubles
Our heartache
Let Jesus shine
Let His love shine
Let Jesus shine

It's in those times
When pressure confines
And there's no place to hide

Unavoidables come
Though you wish you could run
You have much to decide

From the heart then can flow
What will then surely show
The difference Jesus can make

Let Him shine through
All of our pain
All of the hardships this life can bring
Let His love shine
Shine through our trials
Shine through our struggles
Our troubles
Our heartache
Let Jesus shine
Let His love shine
Let Jesus shine

Bridge:
For it's in the hard times
He can change us most
What we'd become left to ourselves
The world so clearly shows
But if in those tough times
When the pressure's on
We respond the way He would
His love is sure to show

9 And this is my prayer: that your love may more and more overflow in fullness of knowledge and depth of discernment,
10 so that you will be able to determine what is best and thus be pure and without blame for the Day of the Messiah,
11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Yeshua the Messiah- to the glory and praise of God.
 ~Phi 1:9-11
