Song contest winner

We're delighted to announce that Shining Light by Peter Hunt is the winner of our Light Up the Fire 40th Anniversary contest.

Owing to a disappointing shortage of entries, the second prize hasn't been awarded. However we think our winner is a great example of a contemporary interpretation of the Light Up the Fire theme by a new musician and deserves its place. It has superb guitar work, great lyrics, great pace and high production values and well deserves to win. We've added the song to our Parchment play-list.

As the anniversary is still under way we're going to keep the second prize open until September 30th. That is a prize of £60.



Lyrics:
Just a normal guy walking down the street
when he looks up from the ground and what does he see
he sees a need for love, a need for hope
he sees a need for God

Please God use us, use us for your glory
let the fire inside burn brighter

let us shine for you
let us shine where you want us to
into every corner of every heart
let the light of your love grow the seeds
the seeds of your word

just a normal girl with her friends
but she's not the same, no she's different from them
she sees a need for change, a need to go
she sees a need for new hope

so please God use us, use us for your glory
let the fire inside burn brighter

let us shine for you
let us shine where you want us to
into every corner of every heart
let the light of your love grow the seeds
the seeds of your word

we will go, go where you want us to
cuz nothing, nothing can keep us from you
and we'll burn, brighter than the sun
and it's all, all because of your love

let us shine for you
we will shine where you want us to
into every corner of every heart                      X2
let the light of your love grow the seeds
the seeds of your word
