Lord of Light

Dwelling in the darkness of death’s shadow,

We were blind to our sins, unaware 

Of the heavy chains binding us,

And oblivious of Your beauty.

But You, O Savior Mine, are light itself. 

Even the darkness is not dark to You.

With You are no shifting shadows

Only brilliant, glorious day.

In the beginning, You commanded,

“Let there be light!” And there was.

But sin brought death and shrouded 

Us in the black of night. 

We could not find the path of peace,

The way of love, of grace, was hidden 

Because we were full of darkness, alone,

Lost in our sins and rebellion.

But You, our Lord of glory and of light

Hung in darkness upon that cross

Bearing our sin, suffering for us

So we could be your children of light.

As You speak, our shadows fade,

Your light dispels our darkness and 

We see Your breath-taking beauty

And fall on our knees in worship.
