1. I want my life to be a light for those around me
I want my life to be that roadmap that says “Hope”
I want my life to be a beacon on life’s raging sea
I want the world to see Jesus when they look at me

(Chorus)
When the world looks at me do they see Jesus?
When the world looks at me what do they see?
Do they see hope? Do they see love? Do they see charity?
When the world looks at me what will they see? (2nd time: “do they see”)

2. When I spoke, did my words contain Your wisdom, Lord?
And when I prayed, did my prayers contain Your love?
And did my life reflect the glory of Your Spirit?
And did I show the ones around me they were loved?

Repeat Chorus

When the world looks at you do they see Jesus? (Do they see Jesus?)
When the world looks at you what do they see? (What do they see?)
Do they see hope (hope)? love (love)? and charity?
When the world looks at me what do they see?
And, Lord, when the world looks at me what do they see?
