They Saw the Light - Adam and Eve

Come into my heart
Come into my heart
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus
Come into today
Come in to stay
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.

"Darkness was shrouding the countryside and the earth was trembling.  It was as though a blanket had been laid over everything—leaving one with an ominous feeling of death and foreboding.  It was the type of darkness that made a person feel an inner turmoil and fear.  And there was turmoil. The peace and tranquility had been shattered.  The spirit of rebellion was in the air.  The Prince of Darkness was laughing a hideous laugh of victory.  The crown of creation had become tarnished and spoiled.  It no longer reflected the glory of the Maker.

The earth quaked.  The animals scattered in fear.  A man and woman stood alone.  Filled with shame and guilt—they for the first time in their short lives felt the presence of fear, pain, shame, nakedness, envy, hatred and death.  The brilliant light of a sword blinded their eyes as the angelic guardian escorted them from paradise."*

A hopeless scenario filled with death!  BUT GOD.  

O come, O come, Emmanuel

And ransom captive Israel

That mourns in lonely exile here

Until the Son of God appear

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free

Thine own from Satan's tyranny

From depths of Hell Thy people save

And give them victory o'er the grave

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee, O Israel.
