"Touched by the Dawn"



I saw the dark
I saw the judgment
I saw the hatred
I saw the evil

I grieved
I wept
I wanted to pull my hair out
I wanted to cry and shout

Then I looked to You
I prayed
And You filled me with hope
You showed me Your light

Things will not always be this way
Dawn is coming
The arc of the universe is long
but it bends toward justice

One day all things will be clear
One day Your love will heal
all the wounds of injustice,
ignorance, hatred, and judgment

I remembered my darkness, too
I know how the fear feels
So many don't know any better
I prayed for patience

I prayed for Your love
Your love broke my darkness
Your love kept and sustained me
Your love sustains me still

I saw the darkness
But I looked to You
And I saw the light
of the coming dawn
