The Shadows Flee Away
I am waiting, hoping, praying, for the coming of that day
When the Lord shall come from Heaven, and the shadows flee away.
There is darkness looming around me, and the fears and doubts dismay
But the Morning Star lights up the gloom, and the shadows flee away.
When I feel I cannot go on, and my prayers fade away,
The Lord lifts me from my despair, and the shadows flee away.
Walking through the fire and the flood, the Lord holds the night at bay
My hope is renewed, my Saviour comes, and the shadows flee away.
God’s promises light up my heart, and I find strength for this day,
Comfort comes from my Beloved, and the shadows flee away.
Even when I am faithless, and I don’t have the courage to pray,
Jesus comes, like I knew He would, and my shadows flee away.

Until the day break, and the shadows flee away, turn, my beloved,
and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.
Song of Solomon 2:17
Until the day break, and the shadows flee away,
I will get me to the mountain of myrrh, and to the hill of frankincense.
Song of Solomon 4:6
