The night was long,
And the pain was strong,
It seemed like an endless night,
Then as I wiped the tears away,
And looked at the eastern sky,
I saw that beautiful sunrise,
Transforming that dreary night,
Into the most wonderful day.
Our spiritual life is much the same,
We were lost in sin,
Our soul groaned in pain,
God sent His Son,
Into the world,
As the everlasting light,
Transforming our dark soul
And giving it eternal life.
Thank God for the sunshine,
That transforms night into day,
And thank Him for His Sonshine,
That guides us the heavenly way!
