Shine A Light In The Darkness
Verse 1
You’ve been ignoring the truth you know
Been a pretender for way too long
You’ve gotta be what you claim to be
Are you a son of hell or a child of the King

Verse 2
After the lies you said were true
The compromise you waved on through
I know you’re wishing for something new
But The ancient roads are calling you
Yeah same old love is crying out to you saying

Where there is hatred let us love
Where there is doubt let us trust
Where there is cursing let us bless
Let us bravely walk through the shadow of death
Shine a light in the darkness

Verse 3
You’ve burned bridges and destroyed the roads
There’s nowhere left for you to go
You’ve held grudges and their dragging you down
If you don’t let go then you’re sure to drown
But it’s not too late to turn it all around

It’s time to let all the fighting cease
Take up your cross and follow me
Come on and see what see what love can bring
The lame to walk
The blind to see
The deaf to hear
The mute to speak
The mourners cheer
The lepers clean
The prisoners set free

Shine a light in the darkness

Shine a light
