Josh Garrels - The Light Came Down Lyrics

There is a light
Bright star shining
In the dark night
Old tales come true

All of our fears
Hopes and prayers
He has heard
And answered us

The light came down
Cast the darkness away
He appeared
A helpless child
The light of God came down

There is a light
A new day dawning
Old things pass
All things made new

Prophets have spoken
All He would accomplish
When the light of God
Would dwell with men

The light came down
Cast the darkness away
He appeared
A helpless child
The light of God came to save us
To the world that He made us
O' Lord and savior

  1. MsGroovalicious

    Oh, HOLY grooviness!!!!!!!! 15:06 Wha?!? It's so groovalicious! GOD BE PRAISED!!!!!!!!! AHHHHH...

  2. the one son of God

    Thank you my brother. You sure know how to keep me going! Dont stop angel i need you like we need the father. Remeber we are for him and he is for us. So lest get real. Hold to their ears, what comes from them, if it is not the grace and feeling you put in their souls is worthless, what you do and all of them priceless. God bless! Rise them up with you the closer to the Father the better and we know he is right inside man.

  3. Joshua Dover

    Great stuff...thankyou

  4. MsGroovalicious

    This music is miraculous. I'm so glad that Jesus is groovalicious. Thanks so much, Josh. The art involved on the album covers and videos are equally spectacular. Shalom!

  5. Keri Ostergaard

    Whenever I'm truly feeling down and hopeless Josh helps turn my head towards the Sun/Son. I walked all 500 miles of the Colorado Trail listening to him on my little mp3 player. I prayed for a miracle and walked and sang. The rest is history.

    Margaret Jenkins

    What was your miracle ,Keri ?

    Meck Bee Buzz

    @Margaret Jenkins the next breath. Same as any miracle. <3

  6. Winta Assefa

    'there is a _liggggght_ ; bright star _shiiining_
    In the dark night, old tales come true'


    This is TRUELY Amazing Songs. God Bless You

  8. Winta Assefa

    Sunday afternoon, Googling the lyrics, singing along with a high pitch, moist face. What a day. Thank you Josh. Thank You, our Father in heaven, for music

  9. Tiisetso Leteane

    Only two minutes in and I am touched

  10. Winta Assefa

    Josh, I love your haunting sound. I love the little pictures of your home town and children and the train track you grew up in. You really raise the bars for human worship for me, a fellow creature who's just gripped by His Love. We will probably never say what we really want to say about this Creator we're so intimately tied with, but it's even more unspeakable to leave this compelling reality unspoken of. Thank you for freely sharing your efforts at speaking about Beauty. Bless you

  12. Loughborough Lake Holiday Park

    Found a link to a white owl... timely stuff. Discovered a remarkable artist in the process.

  13. hotelier id

    This is a beautiful album. And I really like your voice ! God bless you Josh :)

  14. J. Tudor

    "...And joy shall be their crown."

  15. Mary Goebel

    Your music is making a difference and encouraging others to follow Jesus.

  16. TGudde

    It is a masterpiece of music.... sheer Genius>>>

  17. Michelle Owens

    It’s two years later here and I am listening in Nov and Thanksgiving hasn’t past yet.😁

  18. Sandra Skyland

    Listening to this in August 2018. lol...Hot summer day ... celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord for Blessing Josh with his amazing talent. God Bless you Josh and your lovely wife and children.

  19. Everett Crawford

    I encourage you Brother in CHRIST. May you stay humbly at the feet of JESUS. To any who are marveling at how Josh is anointed, it's not about what we do as we have been taught in the false deceptive religiousness of the majority of American pulpit's and many other countries. True Christianity is GOD reaching down and redeeming an undeserving people. It's not about you people! As we realize HIS WONDERING LOVE, MERCY and GRACE, HE will become alive in us, as we make HIM above everything. Lay the pride of yourself, striving to attain righteousness aside and just Trust and believe THE WORD! We come to CHRIST humbled by our sin and in awe of HIS LOVE. We must need to stay at that same place and let HIS LOVE continually wash over us to HIS Glory. May we stop trying to figure out how to be, and hear THE WORD as HE wonderfully tells us that we are!! HE is all in all. We are children of GOD because of the work of CHRIST, Glory Hallelujah!! May we walk in that WONDERFUL PROMISE. It is finished!! We are redeemed. All Thanks to the FATHER and HIS SON.

    I would drive my kids nuts because I would play a CD over and over, that the Lord's Spirit would connect with mine, until it saturated my entire being. Then I would move on...returning to it like an old friend. This will be such a CD.

    DUDE! Please come to Columbus, OH or let me know where your next closet concert is. This is some of the most meaningful music I have heard in a while.

    Tony Losekamp

    What time are you getting into Cincinnati? It would be awesome to grab some lunch or dinner and hear about your coming to know Jesus. If you don't think this sounds super creepy shoot me a text 513-569-2782.


    I hope the whole world doesn't text you. Leaving your # on Youtube isn't the brightest idea in the world.

    Tony Losekamp

    That's what I was thinking haha big risk big reward!!! Josh, do you respect the boldness? haha
