You are the light of the world

“You are the light of the world.”
Such a statement, a calling
God speaking to man
we are the light of the world,
us, these clay vessels,
to illumine the darkness
to make straight the crooked paths
to push back the dark
to lead the world home

Great poem.

We are the light of the word and must have dominion.
