When Darkness Falls

When darkness falls,
Light hides His face,
It’s then you must
Lean on His grace.

Deny the lies
That come your way
Upon His cross
Your eyes must stay.

Rejoice that He
Has let you weep.
For suf’ring shows
His love so deep.

And should the sun
Break through the clouds,
A greater joy
He will allow.

Crucifix

CRUCIFIX

Lord, I know You rose from the dead;
You live in glory with Your Father.
But down here it seems
We haven’t heard the news

We’re still fussing and fighting
Darkness seems so enticing
We’re still bleeding down here
Won’t You please come near?

And He did
And He does
And He will

I know You overcame sin
And Your victory is sure
You triumphed over death
Our bonds you have broken

But we’re weak and afraid
Our messy beds we have made
Still thinking false thoughts
And the lies we have bought

We get stuck in our ruts
Wander far from Your ways
We’re still bleeding down here
Won’t You please come near?

And He did
And He does
And He will

I will look to Your cross
Where my soul You have bought
I will lift up my eyes
Keep my eyes on the prize

I will lift up Your name
Trust in You all the same
Though I still bleed sometimes
I have You by my side

And He loves
And He gives
And He walks beside us
