"In The Night" Lyrics [edit]
by Andrew Peterson | from the album Counting Stars
 

I am weary with the pain of Jacob's wrestling
In the darkness with the fear, in the darkness with the fear
But he met the morning wounded with a blessing
So in the night, my hope lives on

And when Elisha woke surrounded by the forces
Of the enemies of God, the enemies of God
He saw the hills aflame with angels on their horses
So in the night, my hope lives on


Oh, in the night
Oh, in the night
Oh, in the night
My hope lives on


I see the slave that toils beneath the yoke unyielding
And I can hear the captive groan, hear the captive groan
For some hand to stay the whip his foe is wielding
Still in the night, my hope lives on

I see the armies of the enemy approaching
And the people driven, trembling, to the shore
But a doorway through the waters now is opening
So in the night, my hope lives on

Oh, in the night
Oh, in the night
Oh, in the night
My hope lives on


Like the son who thought he'd gone beyond forgiveness
Too ashamed to lift his head--but if he could lift his head
He would see his father running from a distance
In the night, my hope lives on

And I can see the crowd of men retreating
As he stands between the woman and their stones
And if mercy in his holy heart is beating
Then in the night, my hope lives on

Well, I remember how they scorned the son of Mary
He was gentle as a lamb, gentle as a lamb
He was beaten, He was crucified, and buried
And in the night, my hope was gone

But the rulers of earth could not control Him
No, they did not take His life--He laid it down
All the chains of death could never hope to hold Him
So in the night, my hope lives on

And I can see the Son of Man descending
And the sword He swings is brighter than the dawn
And the gates of Hell will never stand against Him
So in the night my hope lives on


Oh, in the night
Oh, in the night
Oh, in the night
My hope lives on

Oh, in the night
Oh, in the night
Oh, in the night
My hope lives on
