I have come from the darkness to the light of the Lord

I am searching for the words to a hymn that begins "I have come from the darkness to the light of the Lord, I have come from the night to the day." The melody is very familiar, so I was stunned to find that it did not exist in any of the hymn books I have used in the past 30 years.

The song became widely known when sung by George Beverley Shea, but is also listed as in Baptist Hymnal 1991 (by M W Chaplin)

I believe that the chorus goes (with probable mistakes): "I have come from the darkness to the light, To the light of redemption from sin, O my soul doth rejoice in His might, For my Saviour dwells within." I'm surprised that I can't find the lyrics on-line.

I just found a George B. Shea cassette with it on. Here are the words
I Have Come From the Darkness to the Light

I have come from the darkness to the Light of the Lord,
I have come from the night to the day.
He has guided my footsteps in the truth of His Word,
By His love He has shown me the way.

Chorus:
I have come from the darkness to the Light,
To the light of redemption from sin.
O my soul will rejoice in His might,
For my Savior dwells within.

In the light of His presence all temptations depart,
And the shadows of doubt are cast aside.
With a radiance of sunshine He has entered my heart,
Where His Spirit of Love abides.

Thanks very much for the words, Mary Lou. God bless you. I am a soloist of oldtime revival songs, and this song reminds me of what'd happened to me by the grace of God more than 40 years ago. Charles. [email]cgurney@jgerber.com[/email]

The was a marvelous version done by the late Frank Boggs. Rich baritone.

Great performance indeed. Do you know of any similar performances by Mr. Boggs?
