The chorus of this old hymn came on the radio the other day…it took me back to a time in my life when we would sing this in our youth missions organization in my church…
The more I pondered these lyrics, the more I realized a subtle Truth contained within them…it’s always sunset to sunrise with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…darkness to dawn. He walks with us through our darkness into the dawn. From sunset to sunrise, through the darkest periods of our life, Jesus is with us, He came into our darkness to bring His light, His glory, His power.
The people who walk in darkness will see a great light.
For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine. (Isaiah 9:2)
In darkness there is no choice. It is light that enables us to see the differences between things; and it is Christ who gives us light. Augustus Hare (1792–1834)
