In The Dark

David Erickson



Verse One

One day in the dark, the king of the ages hung on a cruel cross.

He had come to this earth to heal, to save, and to suffer a great loss.

The disciples and his love ones were confused due to this recent event.

In the dark the women watched as the Romans took down the lowly servant.



In the dark he gave it all.  He died for all of our sin.

The blackness of man's heart hurt him deep within.

In the dark and all alone on this old, rugged tree.

In the dark, he died, and he gave it all just for you and me.


Verse Two

On that very dark night his brothers, his disciples hid, and they mourned.

They couldn't believe he was gone and he had suffered and was scorned.

Even when he met with the ten, Thomas doubted his master had risen.

In the dark the men realized that the light had come for this reason.



In the dark he suffered and died for all of us.

Soon the dark would turn to light, his name is Jesus.
