The Darkness Is Passed And The True Ligh


The darkness is pass’d and the true light is shining,
The light that first shone over Bethlehem’s plain;
And the song of the angels new voices are chiming,
Of glory to God and salvation to me.

Refrain:
The true light is shining,
The true light is shining,
And songs are arising from over the sea;
While God in His mercy and love is inclining,
The true light is shining for you and for me.

The darkness is pass’d and the true light is shining,
The shadows are fleeing and morn comes apace;
There’s a glow in the east of a bright silver lining,
The world is awakened to hear of God’s grace. [Refrain]

The darkness is pass’d and the true light is shining;
Oh, let us with light by the Spirit be filled;
For if yielded to God ere our day is declining,
The light must shine thro’ us, as Jesus hath will’d. [Refrain]
