2 And the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. (Genesis 2-4)And later, in the New Testament, Jesus tells the Pharisees: I am the Light of the world. He that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” (John 8:12)
These days, we are aware that the spectrum of light provided by the sun gives mankind Vitamin D - a necessary element for our lives that is absorbed through the skin.
So, given that light was important enough to create first, that Jesus is the light of the world, and that light is necessary for our existence, "light" is a very good word to meditate upon.
And of course, if you get a group a singers together, "This Little Light of Mine" is one everybody knows and can sing several harmonies to, making it just fun to sing.
