There’s a Light

This song was written by Beth Nielsen Chapman who lost her husband to cancer and later survived her own breast cancer.

No one knows that kind of darkness unless they have been touched by it in some way. It doesn't have to be cancer, but the kind of loss and fear that rocks your world in ways you never imagined will hit you one day.

God is our light in the darkness. I have no proof, but I have to believe that it's true. There will be comfort when we don't know where to turn or how to ask for it.

There's a light, there's a light in the darkness
And the black of the night cannot harm us
We can trust not to fear for our comfort is near
There's a light, there's a light in the darkness

It will rain, it will rain in the desert
In the cracks of the plain there's a treasure
Like the thrust of the seed we will await, we believe
It will rain, it will rain in the desert

We will fly, we will fly, we will let go
To this world we, will die but our hearts know
We'll see more on that side when the door opens wide
We will fly, we will fly, we will fly, we will fly

We will all go
--Beth Nielsen Chapman
