Heaven's Dawn


Those who love You
Will not be put to shame
Be faithful to Your promise
Defend the honor of Your name


Because of God's tender mercy, the light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace. (Luke 1:78-79)

I feel it breaking
Heaven’s dawn
Lights come on

Help us to find the way back Home

All is not lost
O radiant dawn
Light has come and darkness scatters
It fades away, and light will shine again
In the darkest places, it will find a way

Let there be light…
And there was light
Your glory cannot be contained
We are mortal, yet You are in our midst

The more I give away
The more I can see
It all begins and ends with You
You are author, finisher
Lord in the highest
The utmost, the deepest
The widest, most transcendent
So far beyond
Yet somehow…

You are so impossibly close to us
One by one we have been written in Your heart
We find rest in knowing that Your heart beats for us
We are both lost and found in You
Perfectly intermingled in all that You are

You become more so we become less
You reduce us, release us, revive us
You breathe into us
What is mine I will not keep
To live is Christ, and to die is gain
There is none for me but You

We will sing as one
We will burn as one
Perfectly at one with You

May we move in time
With a rhythm that is divine
Sing in tune with a song
That resounds across the Heavens

We could join with the songs of angels
Let it echo around the universe
Circling galaxies and distant creations
Returning more fully than when it was first released

And still, we know
It all begins and ends
With You
