Gift of Dawn

In the darkness of the night…
Dawn is coming.In stillness preceding light…
Dawn is coming.
In the depth of dark despair…
Dawn is coming.
In sharp coldness everywhere…
Dawn is coming.

It comes in humbleness and light.
It comes in mystery and quiet.
It comes in pain and sacrifice.
It comes in glory and surprise.

To the weak and to the small…
Dawn is coming.
To the ones who dare not call…
Dawn is coming.
To the king who yields his will…
Dawn is coming.
To the angels waiting still…
Dawn is coming.

It comes with hope for each new day.
It comes with mercy to proclaim.
It comes with promise to all lands.
It comes with grace from God’s own hand.

With the dawn comes hope and joy.
A common birth, a baby boy.
A gift to all from God above.
A message true, a note of love.

Sing of the Dawn that’s come to us.
Praise His Name, the Lord Jesus.
