lyrics

come the ending of this day I'm gonna lay my head down
lay my head down awhile
but in the morning I'll be gone just like a bird in flight
like a bird in flight I will be gone

I'll walk into eternity with my head held high
child of a promise
clothed now in a garment that I can't shake off
I just cannot shake it off

so when the cold comes rushing through me
when the howling winds begin to shake me
I will not let the darkness overtake me
I will not let the darkness win

the setting of the sun makes the shadows grow long
but it leaves no shadow over me
for though I was sown in sorrow I'll be raised in joy
raised like a new day dawning

I've heard it said that night will fall and cover all our sin
cover over everything
but I know the deathly scorpion angel's tail has lost its sting
his tail has lost its sting

so ground, you'll never own me
though surely as I live you'll try to claim me
but I will not let the darkness overtake me
I will not let the darkness win

when we say our goodbyes it leaves a bitter taste
it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth
but I'll drink the honeyed nectar that will wash the taste right out
we'll drink of it together soon enough

this world has tried to crush me
but there is nothing left here that can break me
so I will not let the darkness overtake me
I will not let the darkness win

when fear comes to enslave me
when all my hopes and bravery forsake me
I will not let the darkness overtake me
I will not let the darkness win
I will not let the darkness win
