      In most cases a Light Crossbow (1d8 + dex modifier) will hit more often and will deal more damage than Sacred Flame, especially if the cleric in question is Shadowheart, since she has a higher Dex.
      It does ignore cover, however, and I think a Hexed creature will have a higher likelihood to be hit.
