Light Up the Darkness – lyrics

See the darkness
Over the people
Like the blind grope along the walls
All is darkness
We look for light
We wait for deliverance

When you pass through the water
I will be with you
When you walk through the fire
You will not be burned
Help me to walk
Walk by your side
Lean on your arm
Take comfort in me
Cleanse my soul
Open my eyes
Make me to see

All our searching
All our weeping
Like lost children
Each one of us all
Lost in darkness
We look for light
We wait for deliverance

When you pass through the water
I will be with you
When you walk through the fire
You will not be burned
Help me to walk
Walk by your side
Lean on your arm
Take comfort in me
Cleanse my soul
Open my eyes
Make me to see

You heavens above rain down righteousness
Let the clouds shower down
Let the earth open wide
Let salvation spring up all over the land
Light up the darkness
Light up the darkness

When you pass through the water
I will be with you
When you walk through the fire
You will not be burned
Help me to walk
Walk by your side
Lean on your arm
Take comfort in me
Cleanse my soul
Open my eyes
Make me to see
