To the people who once walked in darkness

SONG: To the people who once walked in darkness there has shone forth a glorious light! A hopeful, buoyant Christmas song.

Recorded for Brunstad Christian Church’s international Christmas concert 2020, this uplifting song is about the new hope and possibilities that we have, thanks to the glorious light that has shone into our hearts with the birth of Jesus Christ as our Savior. For anyone who is tired of darkness and sin, we have a marvelous light to follow into freedom and transformation!

Lyrics: To the people who once walked in darkness

To the people who once walked in darkness
There has shone forth a glorious light.
Those who lived in the flesh
In the shadow of death
Have received a hope so bright.
Unto us has a Child been given;
The Messiah has come to earth.
God’s Own Son has come down from heaven;
A new star proclaimed His birth. (Isaiah 9:2-7.)

Jesus’ life was a light in the darkness,
And mankind saw the glory of God.
From a child, through His youth,
Filled with grace and the truth,
Faithfully God’s way He trod.
Every word of God’s law did He cherish
To destroy all of sin and strife.
And He died that man should not perish,
But have everlasting life.

His disciples do not walk in darkness,
For they follow a marvelous light.
We are saved from all sin
Through the knowledge of Him
To be righteous in God’s sight.
By His grace we receive revelation;
All the blind can receive new sight.
All can now be a new creation
Through obedience to God’s light.
