When the world tells us

When the world tells us “all is lost,” God still says “all is loved in me.”
All is loved and all is forgiven; open your eyes, behold and see!
Love! Love! Show us that Christ is coming!
Love! Love! Show us that Christ is near!

When the darkness says “light is gone,” Light reminds us to be surprised:
See the fire igniting before us; see how the dawn invades the skies!
Light! Light! Show us that Christ is coming!
Light! Light! Show us that Christ is near!

Fear says “cover your eyes and ears”; Hope says “listen and watch and wait.”
Stand and watch, redemption is coming; now hope will come and not be late!
Hope! Hope! Show us that Christ is coming!
Hope! Hope! Show us that Christ is near!


Tune: BRING A TORCH (see GtG 110)
