Shadows

Standing in the shadows
shielded from the light
waiting for the darkness
inevitable at night
Expected is the dawn
but hours ’til it breaks
the unseeable reality
its weary toll does take
Come quickly sun and Son
unlock this prison dark
Release the weighty cloud
that has settled o’er my heart
By your power I face this foe
and take comfort in the thought
you felt this on the cross
as our freedom there you bought
You trusted in the coming day
when life and light would win
You left behind the darkness
and the carcass of our sin
So be comforted my spirit
hold fast my tumultuous soul
the Lord our God has promised
a brighter future to behold
