Piercing the Darkness

Piercing the Darkness
God's light pierces the darkness;
His light scatters the night!
God's light pierces the darkness;
Jesus is that Light!
~
In all the world, no other name;
No other hope; no other way;
No other truth; no other life;
He is the Son, the only true Light,
To pierce the darkness!
~
God's light pierces the darkness;
Bringing hope for all men!
Light that shatters the darkness;
Breaking chains of sin.
~
Gospel of hope, Power of grace;
Jesus forgives; sin is erased!
Darkness is gone; new life is found!
Tell the good news, Jesus came down
To pierce the darkness!
~
Lord, You banished my darkness!
Brought me into Your light!
Saved me for Your glory!
Changed my blindness to sight!
~
Light of the World! Bright Morning Star!
O what a great Savior You are!
Lord of my life I now confess
You are my King, the only True Light
To pierce the darkness!

This is a song that was written and published by one of the pastor's of our church. I am never able to get through it without tears in my eyes. It is a poignant song of truth and I was compelled to share it here.
