Lyrics

One light in a dark valley
And the mist is falling like rain
One light in a dark valley
And I'm alone again

One light in a dark valley
And I am all alone
One light in a dark valley
Is all I can call my own

One light in a dark valley
And the darkness is moving about
One light in a dark valley
And now that light has gone out

No light in this dark valley
Nothing but the darkness and me
No light in this dark valley
For all eternity

Light it up, Lord
Let it shine

Come on and make the heavens so
Brightly mine
Look through all the windows
Open all the doors
There will be such brightness round me
I won't want for anymore
