... and the darkness has not overcome It.
We who walked in darkness have seen a great Light; upon us that walked in the shadow of the valley of death has the Light shined. That Light shines into our world, and all the evil in the world cannot overwhelm It; It keeps on shining.
That Light shines into our hearts, and all the guilt in our hearts cannot dim It; It shines on, infinite forgiveness. All the brokenness and sorrow in us cannot overwhelm It; It shines on, healing and hope. Even death cannot put out that Light; it shines through to the other side of the grave, endless Life.
That Light took flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, full of grace and truth.
