Out in the dark

I’m going to let it shine

Oh, out in the dark

I’m going to let it shine

Hallelujah

Out in the dark

I’m going to let it shine

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine


“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God,” words rise from a lone voice, growing from the small country church congregation, lying deep in the heart of the American South.  The voice barely has a discernible echo, floating to the back of the room.

“No higher power,” is proclaimed loudly by one single voice in front of a hungry crowd of worshipers.  The echo now fills the room. Head down, concentrating intensely, his movements look as though he is storing up a body full of potential energy.

“Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation,” says another voice rising eerily out into the room.

“Whosoever resisteth the power of God,” is echoed from the man, now circling, almost nervously, his energy building.

“Come on, come on. Tell it,” a multitude of voices now filling the room, giving force and vigor to the man now circling the stage.

“Those who resisteth receive damnation,” proclaims the man, now breaking a sweat, as he circles the small stage once more.

“Amen. Come on,” rises like an on coming wave in the distance from out of the crowd.

Voices continue. “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? Do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same.”

We’re fixing to find out what the power was,” loudly proclaims the man on stage, now starting to pour sweat, with the room beginning to fill with the energy he is manifesting with his proclamations and movements.

Voices continue loudly. “But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.”

Silence.
