lyrics

VERSE 1:
Children of God, your body is a lamp—
Full of light so bright no darkness can hide.
Sons of God, learn to guard your eyes.
The chains of this world want to keep you from living in the light.

VERSE 2:
Church of God, seek a servant’s heart,
Pour out Your love as an offering to Christ.
Daughters of God, when lost in the fight—
Look to the Light of the World; He will guide you through the night.

CHORUS:
Rust will destroy, moth will destroy,
But there’s a brilliance of light in the darkest of times,
That will never be overcome.

VERSE 3:
Wounded one, what burdens keep you down?
You don’t have to bear this pain alone.
Wandering child, in darkness we are blind,
The Word is a lamp for your feet, if you seek then you will find.

FINAL CHORUS:
Rust will destroy, moth will destroy,
But there’s a brilliance of light in the darkest of times,
That will never be overcome.
What trials we may face, our hopes they may fade,
But the hope of God will withstand the night,
It will set the world aflame.
And rust will destroy, and moth will destroy,
But His Kingdom will stand through the darkness,
It will never be overcome.
What trials we may face, our hopes they may fade
But as the morning stars sang together,
So God’s people raised their voice.
But the hope of God will withstand the night,
It will set the world aflame.
But His Kingdom will stand through the darkness,
It will never be overcome.
