when darkness reigns lyrics – this divided world

from the beginning this ground was cursed
the works of our hands for our selfishness
this can’t be the meaning of our existence
when will the truth be found?

you think you’re running from a lie
but the truth is looking to be found
few will find it in this darkened world
when darkness reigns

earth quakes shatter and sin is victorious
but only for a moment, only for a moment
dead and risen, he is king
even when the darkness reigns

he was betrayed by every man and woman
we were the killers of our lord
my sin weighed heavy on your shoulders
but you cast it away and remember it no more

the violence has begun to fill this earth
the prince of this world wears his crown and holds his
scepter high
dark clouds remain

and this may be
the final outpost
the final lighthouse
the last encampment

the darkness reigns
but we are victorious

/ this divided world lyrics
