When the shadows were shot through with light
When Jesus took in that breath
And shattered all death with his life
Be gone, you wages of sin
Go on, don’t you come back again
I’ve been raised and redeemed
You’ve lost all your sting
To the victor of the battle
High noon in the valley of the shadow
Last night, we were singing Andrew Peterson’s Come Back Soon in the dark.
But this morning, in the light we are singing Peterson’s High Noon.
Thank you, Jesus, for holding back the darkness, for the hope that thrums through our hearts. Help us cling to that hope when we are weak. Amen.
