Song with words of a Prayer by St. Francis Assisi

Post by PaulG » Wed May 02, 2012 6:32 pm

Hello, my name is Paul,

I am looking for a song I heard on a Christian Radio Station back in the early 1990's. I always heard it when I was driving and with no cell phones in those days I was not able to call in and ask for details.

It was on par with something the Maranatha Singers would do. The lyrics are from a prayer by St. Francis Assisi as follows:

"..when men look at me, I want them to see, the light of the world in me."

Thank you for your help, :)

Hi Paul,

I believe you'll find what you're looking for under the post by "Guest" on January 21 2010 here:

It is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, It is in dying that we are born to eternal life, Make me an instrument of Your peace, I want to know what it's like to follow You, When men look at me, I want them to see the Light of the world inside.

God bless,
Steve

It is a song sung by the band Gabriel in the early 1990s.

Actually, it was earlier than the 1990s! I just sang it in the early 90’s. The title is, “A Simple Prayer,” sung by Gabriel.
Here is a link to a YouTube video. I haven’t been able to find it elsewhere.
