Dawn of the New Day ~ By Caroline Gavin

Dawning Light of Jesus

The sun bursts in the sky,

The rays warm my heart:

Glorious to witness

A new day at its start.

 

Such is the entry

Of dawn on the earth,

Such is the triumph:

A new day at its birth.

 

For light overcomes

The darkness of night.

Yes, darkness surrenders

To the glory of light.

 

The truth of the Lord

Shines in this way;

The truth of Christ

Shines bright as the day.

 

Though darkness is deep,

Though sin is vast,

None can overcome

Light of First and Last.

 

Glory, Glory to God,

For the Light He gives.

Praise to our Father:

His goodness lives.

 

His goodness and truth

Prevail forevermore;

His love and His light

Eternally endure.

 

Dance I shall then

In the warmth of His rays.

Sing I shall of Him

All my life, all my days.

 

I shall join hands

With sister and brother;

We lift our hearts to God

And uplift one another.

 

Rejoicing in the Son-light,

Rejoicing in its rays,

Rejoicing in Jesus –

His love does amaze!

His Light overcomes

The darkness of night.

Yes, darkness surrenders

To the glory of Light.

 

Such is the entry

Of Truth on the earth,

Such is the triumph:

Jesus Christ brings rebirth.

 

His Light fills my soul,

His rays warm my heart:

Glorious to witness

New Life at its start.
