Remain in the Darkness

Remain in the darkness, though full of fright,
Children of faith do not fear;
I will find you there, it is a sure sight.

When the night comes, don't seek the light
Tho uncertainty is so hard to bear;
Remain in the darkness, though full of fright.

Blurred vision causing men to suffer blight
Be still, for it will be steered clear;
I will find you there, it is a sure sight.

The night, don't turn to a day bright
For brilliance is yet insincere
Remain in the darkness, though full of fright.

Blinding darkness overnight
Is all you have to bear;
I will find you there, it is a sure sight.

Tonight you should not spite
Open your heart and you will hear
Remain in the darkness, though full of fright.
I will find you there, it is a sure sight.
