He was not himself the light

He was not himself / the light, but he was to bear witness / concerning the light, / that all might believe through him. / He was not himself the / light, but he was to / bear witness to the / Light. It was the / true light that enlightens every / man who comes into / this world / He gave the power / of becoming of becoming / Sons of God / to those who believe.
