How long you have trembled, in darkness weeping
No rest in language, no words to speak
But there in the wreckage, beneath bricks and blindness
Love has come, love has come for you

Against the night sky of your waiting
Your face is like starlight when he walks in
Everything worth keeping it comes through dying
And love has come, love has come for you

So lift up your heart now to this unfolding
All that has been broken, it will be restored
And here runs deep waters for all who are thirsty
Cause love has come, love has come for you

Ten thousand angels will light your pathway
Until the day breaks fully in the east
And they will surround you and make your way straight
Cause love has come, love has come for you
Oh love has come, love has come for you

    General CommentThis song is talking about the darkness and the state of being lost in sin. However, love has come, in the form of Jesus, to take away that darkness. John 1:4-5 it says, "In him was life, and that life was the light of men.The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it." Also in John 3:19 says, "This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil."

    The only thing you have to do to receive the light is trust that Jesus died on the cross and rose from the dead to save you from an eternity in hell. "For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

    When you trust Jesus Christ for your salvation, the Bible says that the angels rejoice. "In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents," is said in Luke 15:10.
