Rivers & Robots

by SJ

I used Oneword to generate a topic to write about and the word : dawn was my word. I instantly thought of Rivers & Robots’ (my favourite indie worship band) song Light Will Dawn from their All Things New (2014) album.


I love this song, and this band. Their music is so simple but yet devoid of simplistic lyrics, which I have written about here before. It’s like they sing the Bible but in a modern way. This is just good Christian worship music which is hard to find these days. The lyrics are even more beautiful.


As Earth starts to shake
The sleeping awake
Dawn starts to break
And life will be forever changed

Despite what they say
Your love will remain
You’ll come again
And on that day the son will reign

Though darkness surrounds
The Lord will arise and light will dawn across this land

In joy and in pain
I trust in Your name
My rock, you sustain
You’re faithful and you never change

You are really coming back
And I know I will see You face to face my God
One day every knee will bow
And one day every tongue confess that You are God

And I believe that I will see
The goodness of The Lord while I’m breathing
So I will trust upon Your name
You are my hope and my strength
