Jesus Is The Light

By Elton Smith and Larry Holder

CCLI Number: 2513683

We are in the middle of a "world music" program. You heard "In The Coming Of Messiah" in an African style. Here is one in a Native American style. I'll let you guess what is next (or better yet, send suggestions!). I wrote the music and Larry wrote the lyrics. Check out Larry's popular web site for more great music. - Elton, May 24, 1998

Larry Holder Music



See, beyond the dark of night,
The coming of the dawn:
Jesus is the Light!

To a world once held in darkness,
Now behold, a Light has come.
Jesus is our great Redeemer,
And in Him the battle's won.

Out of the dark,
We are born anew.
Into the Light,
We have come!

God, our Father, loves us,
And has come to lead us home.
He gave His Son to save us,
And on the cross
His love for us is shown.

To a soul that's lost and wand'ring,
The Lord has come to Light the Way.
As the Author of salvation,
He comes to change our night to day.

Out of the dark,
We are born anew.
Into the Light
We have come!

See, beyond the dark of night,
The coming of the dawn:
Jesus is the Light!

I have listened to this song many times over the past few years. It never fails to touch my heart.
Dear Elton,

I find this song delightful and very relaxing. Every song that I have listened to has been worth the time. I love it!
