I used to be so afraid of the dark, but now I know Jesus the Light of the world. Evil influences and its terrible threats once caused me much heartache. But now I know Jesus the One that died in my place to pay for all my sins will fight my battles for me. Jesus is the Light that overtook the darkness around me and within me.
Light Overtakes the Darkness
It takes night to display
The light that takes darkness away.
It takes right to reveal the wrong;
The lie is overpowered by the truth strong.
Jesus is the Truth that proved light,
Overpowers evil-darkness and its blight.
The steady step that walks the walk,
And the faithful lips that talk the talk,
Will defeat every enemy for you see,
God is the Way and the Word for thee.
God’s Word is truth and our bread,
The Word lights the path ahead.
The heart that is opened wide,
To hear, taste, and see, is filled with the best inside
Jesus is the Word that spoke life at the start.
And cried it is finished so new life could enter the heart.
Jesus is the Lord and the Light displayed in the dark place.
He is love and it is His joy to deliver salvation through grace.
His mercy endures forever- darkness will forever flee.
He is God of all and all will one day bow their knee.
Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness:
he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
Surely he shall not be moved for ever:
the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
