Out of Darkness



Into the depths of darkness
Into the shadowland
With no choice but to wander
And to strain to understand
Cringing to cling to an ember
Struggling to see in the night
Caught in a void of chaos
Blind even though eyes have sight

There is One who comes to call us
Out of  darkness to marvelous light
There is One who comes to save us
By His glorious power and might.

Once lost in a fatal delusion
Nowhere to go or to turn
Feeling the deep pangs of hunger
Roiling in a heart that yearns 
This deadly darkness He invaded
True Truth to illuminate
Out of the darkness He calls us
Into a glorious state.

There is One who comes to call us
Out of  darkness to marvelous light
There is One who comes to save us
By His glorious power and might.

Bridge
Out of the darkness into the light
Into His glory where faith becomes sight
Out of the shadows stumbling in the night
Out of the graveyard to skies shining bright

There is One who comes to call us
Out of  darkness to marvelous light
There is One who comes to save us
By His glorious power and might.
