My Song In The Night

from The Whole Big Story by Kristen Gilles



Inspired by the anonymous American gospel hymn, this song tells the story of Jesus' dark night in Gethsemane and His sacrifice for us, which paved the way for us to be adopted as sons and daughters of God.

"You conquered the darkness,
My Song in the night"


My Song In The Night
Written by Bobby & Kristen Gilles
Inspired by the anonymous American Southern Folk Hymn of the same title

Verse 1
O Jesus my Savior, my song in the night,
The rest for my soul, the strength for my fight.
To You, O Lord, in affliction I call,
By day my comfort; by night my song.

Verse 2
O Jesus my Savior, my song in the night,
A servant by choice, but a king by all rights.
In Your darkest hour, I could not stay awake,
But still you pressed on to the cross for my sake.

You sang no song in Gethsemane,
But cried “My God, take this cup from me!”
Yet for sinners’ sake, You gave up your rights
And died for all wrongs – My song in the night.

Verse 3
O why should I wander away from Your care?
Or fear for my future? You’ve made me an heir;
Adopted by God to the Kingdom of Light
You conquered the darkness, my song in the night.
(To Chorus)
