Representative Text

1 There’s a light that is shining in darkness,
While we wait for the dawning of day;
And it cheers us along on our journey,
Till the shadows shall vanish away!

Refrain:
So we’ll wait and watch for the dawning,
The day of eternity blest;
Then take the wings of the morning,
And fly away to our rest.

2 From the sure word the prophets have spoken,
There is light flashing forth through the gloom;
For the Scripture can never be broken,
And the King in His glory will come. [Refrain]

3 Now we sing ‘mid the darkness and shadows,
And we pray and we watch for the dawn;
Till the Daystar, in glory arising,
Shall betoken the coming of morn. [Refrain]

4 We are not of the night nor of darkness;
Let us walk, then, as children of day;
Our weeping shall be for a moment,
And our joy shall ne’er vanish away! [Refrain]
