Christ is our Guiding Light


Christ Is Our Guiding Light was composed by Rev. Eric Law of the Kaleidoscope Institute and works well as a canon or round in 2, 3 or 4 parts. There is also a lovely descant line for a cantor to sing once the group is confident. It could be used as a candle lighting song, for the Passing of Peace, and even in protests and marches. 

"Christ is our guiding light:
Come, let us walk in the way of peace."

Sheet music can be found in Singing In Community, our latest songbook published by Augsburg Fortress, or in Music By Heart.

Here's an audio recording of Emily Scott teaching this song and giving some helpful suggestions for how to lead it paperlessly.

Here's a video of Ruth Williamson leading Christ is Our Guiding Light at Music that Makes Community in Los Angeles in October of 2008.
