NOTES
Three mixes of a new version of the track originally performed by U.K. Heights in 1995. Inspired by the Pre-Raphaelite painting by William Holman Hunt "The Light of The World" it is a modern day secular prayer for peace and tranquility in a wounded world. Lyrics below -

Light of the World

This light shines out for those that have the eyes to see
it dispels all doubt, it hosts no anxiety
and it speaks without words
it is the light of the world

this light knows no religion race or creed or cause
cos this light needs no protection, walls or bolted doors
this light's not vain but feigns no false humility
this light is reason but it's impulse cuts it free

it nurtures no revenge resentment or disdain
it shows no rage or hate, seeks no reward or gain

this light knows not the lies by which we all deceive
it harbours no desire no lust no pride or greed
this light is grieving, abiding concern
this light is feeling that's felt without nerves

this is the light
it is the light of the world

this light's not forceful
but its strength could move your heart
this light can heal the wounds that tear this world apart

this light is conscience
that begs to be heard
so let in the light
let in the light of the world

this is the light
let in the light
of the world

and it's alright
