I’ve been waiting, waiting for you
In the shine of the lights, I’ve been searching for you
It feels like you left me here
There’s just no denying
Through the doubt and the fear
Are you willing to find me 
Down here

A cry in the dark
A cry from the heart of this brokenness
I am hopeless and I
Just need tidings of comfort
A little bit of peace
I want to feel all the joy
I want to feel it beneath
All the pain and the hurt and all of these scars
I'm falling apart
Hallelujah, a cry in the dark

I’ve been longing, longing for you
In the midst of these gifts, all I want is the truth
All these shadows dance in darkness
They try to deceive me
Do you see me, do you know me
Are you willing to meet me
Right here

Out of heaven
A shimmer of light in a manger
A savior born in the night
Right into the brokenness, a light in the dark
Hark! Angels rejoicing and praising the start
Of this new revolution of love and a new kind of peace
And relief from these anxieties inside of me
The King of the hurting and all the dismayed
The angels declare it
Do not be afraid!
