Hymn/Song Information

Darkness over the world was brooding




Darkness oer the world was brooding
Sadder than Egyptian gloom;
Souls by myriads lay in slumber
Deep as of the sealed tomb.


Earth had lost the links which bound it
To the throne of light above;
Yet an eye was watching oer it,
And that eye was full of love.


Like a glorious beam of morning,
Straight a ray pierced through the cloud,
Spirits mightily awakening
From their dark and heavy shroud.


Still that ray shines on and brightens,
Chasing mist and gloom away;
Happy they on whom it gathers
With its full and perfect day!
