Let There Be Light

Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

John 3:20-21 NIV.
In deep darkness I languished long
Wondering what I had done wrong 

Without the Light I could not see
The truth set right in front of me

Darkness a shroud of suffering
Where pain and lies piercingly ring

Without God's Light darkness will blind
Hiding deceit deep in my mind

Why such darkness I cannot say
It seemed to always be this way

Without the Light I stumble, fall
Until I hear my Savior call

Out of darkness He bids me near
Unto His grace away from fear

Let there be Light He spoke and then 
My soul was bathed in truth again

I now could see my hope, my love
Emerging from His Light above
