Driven into Darkness

"He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world… this is the place of him that knoweth not God" (Job 18:18,21).  "Behold, God is mine Helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul" (Psalm 54:4).  "If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death… He that keepeth thy soul, doth not He know it?  And shall not He render to every man according to his works?" (Proverbs 24:11,12).  "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15). 

How dreadful the future will be
For all who will not know the Lord
When light from their dwelling shall flee
And darkness shall be their reward!

How great is the grace that is given
To us who are helped by our Savior!   
If not for His love, we'd be driven
In darkness away from His favor. 

Our days on this earth are so few;
Occasions to speak are soon gone. 
Shall not we convey what is true
To those who in darkness are drawn? 

O Lord, we have heard Your command: 
Souls driven in darkness need light! 
We go with Your Gospel in hand
To rescue the lost from their plight!
