The light has come, and the darkness can
Never be the same, O hallelujah!
The light has shone, and the darkness ran
Never to return, O Hallelu!
Thy Word made flesh, Thy glory revealed
Its entrance gave great light.
You spoke, He came; Christ Jesus His name, And He has scattered the night.
The light has come, and the darkness can
Never be the same, O hallelujah!
And now the light shines to every man;
You can live in light, O hallelu!
The sound of joy fills the earth and sky,
And the bells peal forth their hallelujah!
The day has dawned, and the sun climbs high For the light has come, O hallelu!
This Child now born, himself is the truth
The truth which sets men free.
His glory shines to all of mankind,
And His light brings liberty.
The sound of joy fills the earth and sky,
And the bells peal forth their hallelujah!
With freedom's song lift your voice and cry, Jesus Christ is Lord, O hallelu!
A silver beam splits the sky above,
And His star appears, O hallelujah!
A glory streams spreading hope and love
As Messiah comes, O hallelu!
He tramples darkness under His feet,
His battle flag unfurled;
Despair and bondage Shatter and flee
For He's the light of the world.
A silver beam splits the sky above,
And His star appears, O hallelujah!
His kingdom come is a rule of love
Casting out all fear, O hallelu!
The light has come, and to every man
Life has been revealed, O hallelujah!
Tho' some resist it, they never can
Overcome its power, O hallelu!
For God in flesh once walked on the earth
As Jesus, Son of Man.
The splendor of His glory displayed
Continues ages to span.
The light has come, and to every man
Life has come to light, O hallelujah!
And as it comes unto me
I can be renewed in life, O hallelu!

The light has come, and the darkness can Never be the same, O hallelujah!
The light has shone, and the darkness ran Never to return, O Hallelu!
Thy Word made flesh, Thy glory revealed Its entrance gave great light.
You spoke, He came; Christ Jesus His name, And He has scattered the night.
The light has come, and the darkness can Never be the same, O hallelujah!
And now the light shines to every man; You can live in light, O hallelu!

The sound of joy fills the earth and sky, And the bells peal forth their hallelujah!
The day has dawned, and the sun climbs high For the light has come, O hallelu!
This Child now born, himself is the truth The truth which sets men free.
His glory shines to all of mankind, And His light brings liberty.
The sound of joy fills the earth and sky, And the bells peal forth their hallelujah!
With freedom's song lift your voice and cry, Jesus Christ is Lord, O hallelu!

A silver beam splits the sky above, And His star appears, O hallelujah!
A glory streams spreading hope and love As Messiah comes, O hallelu!
