“And He shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises, a morning without clouds” 2 Samuel 23:4

 

A single golden reaching ray

Stretching to touch your heart

It is the beginning of a new day,

A rebirth, a fresh start.

 

The brightness of the light grows,

And darkness is defeated.

Let the world know

The Son’s work is completed.

There is a miracle in the sun’s light

A reminder at day’s break

Of the miracle of the Son’s light

He has died and risen our sins to take. ‎

 

Truly the beams are warm, it is sweet.[1]

It guides us on our way

As a lamp for our feet,[2]

And our eyes behold the marvelous display.[3]

 

We find fellowship under the sun,[4]

In the light we have life.[5]

The shadows have been undone,

We are not alone in strife.

 

There is a miracle in the sun’s light,

A reminder at day’s break

Of the miracle of the Son’s light

His people He did not forsake.

 

Lift your head, lift your eyes,

Take in the colours of day’s dawn.

The Lord will return in the sky,

The sunrise a sign as we live on.

 

One day, the sun’s course shall cease,[6]

It’s light not needed anymore.

But the brightness will increase,

God’s glory to shine forevermore.[7]

 

There is a miracle in the sun’s light,

A reminder at day’s break

Of the miracle of the Son’s light

Until He comes again with a bright outbreak.
