“They will look toward the earth and see only distress and darkness and fearful gloom……See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples.”
Isaiah 8:22, Isaiah 60:2a
The darkest day,
the world’s night,
before the dawn.
“…but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you…the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory…and your days of sorrow will end.” Isaiah 60:2b, 19b
