Mighty fighty to be a brighty lighty

I wrote this poem last Sunday for Southgate Church and their all age service. They asked me to help them celebrate their 40th birthday with some community events, which were wonderfully lavish and bold. This poem could be used for Light parties or alternative Halloween events. I got half the congregation to shout out ‘Bri’ and ‘Lie’ and the other to shout out ‘Tea’. Connecting the two you get ‘Bri-tea lie-tea’ It’s a bit of fun!

It’s mighty frighty to be a brighty lighty

When my mates ask what I did over the weekend

It’s easier to say: ummmmm, aaaaarrrh, nothing much

Watched some TV

Went to the park

I keep the God-stuff in the dark

It’s mighty fighty to be a brighty lighty

It’s better for me to bury what I have

Than shine on bright

To show and tell

To make people well

To help and be and let others see

The life of the one who is given so free

It’s mighty fighty to be a brighty lighty

What if people where to see

At school, work or when I’m up a tree

The Light of the world shining so differently

Beams of hope for the broken, bruised and battered due to the lack of light.

Even though it’s mighty fighty to be a brighty lighty

Help me to shine with the mighty almighty and be a brighty lighty

Help me to shine with the mighty almighty and be a brighty lighty!
