Out of Darkness Into Light

Out of darkness into light, Glory breaks around me!

Author: Charles Roads
Tune: [Out of darkness into light] (Kirkpatrick)
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Out of darkness into light,
Glory breaks around me!
Oh, how dense and dark the night
Where his mercy found me.
All the past was sin and gloom,
All the future sorrow;
Now his smiles my way illume,
Brighter still the morrow.

Refrain:
Out of darkness into light,
Peace is like a river;
Saved by his redeeming might,
Light and life forever!

2 Out of darkness into light,
Oh, the love that sought me!
Found me trembling with affright,
Out of anguish brought me!
By a touch my blindness healed,
Gave me sight so glorious,
By a word his light revealed
Jesus, all victorious! [Refrain]

3 Out of darkness into light,
On the mount of glory,
Heaven coming into sight
"While we tell the story.
All the fellowship of joy
I am now possessing;
Ev'ry power would I employ,
Love supreme confessing, [Refrain]
