Made in the darkness

by Matt Gullett

I was made in the darkness
And birthed into light
My soul is entrusted
To a God out of sight.

I've tossed and I've turned
In the fear of the night
Not knowing his brilliance
Too torn up with fright.

The Sadness has taken
A great toll on my life.
It grips and it stabs
Fills my spirit with strife.

The maker reminds me
That peace lies in him
My flesh will deceive me
But he gives me hymns.

Joy that's unspeakable
Wells up inside
When my gaze breaks away
And turns to his side.

Pierced by a spear
As he hung on a cross
Buried my shame
And took all my loss.

Let me rise up and worship
This Savior I know
My sins stained the darkest
Are now white as snow.
