In early morning stillness, before the glow has lit the skies,
I lie upon my bed and slowly open up my eyes.
Though gray is all around me as I glance around my room,
I know the Light is coming to chase away the gloom.
For darkness holds no power to corrupt or to deceive
If I but turn toward the Light and say, Lord, I believe.
As surely as the Son did rise, the dark will pass away
As truth and love come shining into the break of day.
Today I will not cower; there is nothing that I fear.
Whenever I call out his name, I know that he will hear.
Each morning he reminds me, when dawn becomes new day
That Christ the Lord has risen and comes to light my way.
