Sunset to Sunrise

Great darkness fell over all the land,
while the sun yet abode in the sky;
a feeling of heaviness pervaded the earth,
as the Savior chose to suffer and die.

Gloom in the heart of Christians dwelt
sitting like stone upon their souls;
for they had lost their vision
of attaining their heavenly goal.

But what a blessed awakening,
when He burst forth from the grave,
where death could not detain Him,
nor could the devil's rage.

Three days, two nights in its prison
were all that God ordained,
while the Son of God went deep into hell
And all lost authority regained;

Yes, the Son rose bright in the morning,
bringing eternal victory;
the penalty for sin was paid,
atonement for you and me.
