Song title: Let Your Light Shine in the Darkness

Father God You look on me
Yet see no sin or shame
You see Your Son who died for all
To take away my blame
He left his Father’s glorious throne
All radiance set aside
And hung alone eclipsed by sin
‘Til sin was crucified

 

Let Your light shine in the darkness
Let Your light shine in the darkness

 

Empty now the threat of death
As Empty lay the grave
And all whose faith is in his life
Will know His power to save
Christ returned to heaven above
In glorious light and power
And by His Spirit I have hope
To light my darkest hour

 

Let Your light shine in the darkness
Let Your light shine in the darkness

 

Empty now the threat of death
As Empty lay the grave
And all whose faith is in his life
Will know His power to save
Christ returned to heaven above
In glorious light and power
And by His Spirit I have hope
To light my darkest hour

 

Let Your light shine in the darkness
Let Your light shine in the darkness

 

As the moon reflects the sun
Now radiant we stand
Freed from sin and Satan’s grip
God’s kingdom is at hand
Darkness, sin and death retreat
And flee the marching dawn
His love casts out our fear and doubt
So let His church shine on

 

Let Your light shine in the darkness
Let Your light shine in the darkness

 

 

Written by Paul Robertson and Greg de Blieck, this hymn about God’s light reflects on powerful gospel truths. It’s incredible for Christians to realise that God now looks upon us and sees the perfection of His son. The work that Christ did on the cross does not just cause God to look the other way, or grudgingly accept us – it utterly removed our sins from us. Christ’s righteousness was imputed to those who put their faith in Him as their saviour and lord. Our sins were crucified on His cross.

Empty now the threat of death
As Empty lay the grave
And all whose faith is in his life
Will know His power to save

 

Being saved from our sins is a glorious fact of the gospel, but it is not the whole gospel. It is not just what we’ve been saved FROM but what we’ve been saved TO. Death has become an empty threat to us. Christ becomes the light for our darkest hours.His spirit lives in us as the source of our sanctification. We may still battle the effects of sin and darkness in our lives and in the world around us, but a decisive victory has already been won, our status has changed, and that is a source of unwavering hope for His church. God’s kingdom is at hand!
