in the stillness of a quiet moment
when conscience finds its voice to speak
it tells of deeds done in night’s darkness
pitch-black lust and hidden hate

noise can drown the accuser
and summon back a chaosed mind
but noise cannot hide
and chaos cannot cleanse sin

the din that dulls the guilt
cannot save on judgment day
darkness comes not from without
but from within a soiled soul

in Christ alone can there be hope
only He can end the night
to follow Him is to be free
only from Light will the darkness flee
