Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.173

First Line: There's a light that is shining in darkness,

There's a light that is shining in darkness,
While we wait for the dawning of day;
And it cheers us along on our journey,
Till the shadows shall vanish away !

So we'll wait and watch for the dawning,
The day of eternity blest;
Then take the wings of the morning,
And fly away to our rest.

2 From the sure word the prophets
have spoken, [the gloom;
There is light flashing forth through
For the Scripture can never be broken,
And the King in His glory will come.

3 Now we sing 'mid the darkness and shadows, ;
And we pray and we watch for the dawn
Till the Day-star, in glory arising,
Shall betoken the coming of morn.
His Second Coming

4 We are not of the night nor of darkness,
Let us walk, then, as children of day;
Our weeping shall be for a moment,
And our joy shall ne'er vanish away !
