I hope you enjoy this song!

100% of purchases from this site go towards new professional recordings. Thank you for supporting music by Sara Lyn Baril.



In connection with the #LIGHTtheWORLD service campaign last year through the LDS Church, I felt inspired to compose a song with the same title. It was one of my favourites of all time to write and I can't believe it took me this long to write it all down! The lyrics flowed in the creation and the melody is one I hum often. It can be performed as a Christmas song, but makes no reference specifically to Christmas and can be used year round.

Here's a little home video of my son singing it:


Words and music by Sara Lyn Baril

So many wait for the light of day,
Searching for the truth; who will show them the way?
As those who heed the Savior’s call,
We’ll show His love and bring light to all.

In a world where there’s darkness,
In a world with night,
We can offer His peace,
We can lead with His light
Sharing all that is good
When we teach as Christ would.
We can light the world.

So many wait for someone to care;
Maybe they wonder if God’s even there.
As those who’ve found the peace that Christ brings
We’ll be his hands at all times, in all things.

In a world where there’s suffering,
We can ease the pain.
Lift the burdens we see and
Bring hope once again.
Sharing all that is good,
When we serve as Christ would.
We can light the world.

The pure love of Christ will change darkness to light
And answer each cry and each prayer.
It heals every wound and dries every tear.
When we act in His name, it’s as if He were here.

In a world where the lonely,
Seek to find one friend.
In a world where there’s heartache,
We’ll help sorrow end.
Sharing all that is good,
When we love as Christ would.
We can light the world.
Sharing all that is good,
As we live as Christ would.
We will light the world.
