In the dark before the dawn
hearts faint and souls tremble,
caught in the whys and wherefores of life,
bound by nets of fear and regret – 
unable to see through the mist
to the coming light.

But Dayspring comes
piercing through the blackness,
spreading the warmth of hope.

Open eyes! Open hearts
to this One
Who can deliver 
from the shadow
of death!

Luke 1: 77 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins, 78 Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us, 79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
