verse: When Jacob turned his feet back home
He faced his brother in great fear.
And cowardly he lagged while his flocks did roam.
But the enemy to strike was near.

And 'til the light of the early morning
Jacob withstood the man with whom he fought.
(Genesis 32.25)
chorus: And there was no more search in darkness,
There was an end to all work in vain,
Misunderstanding ceased forever,
Final relief from all fear and pain.
'Cause he received,
'Cause he received,
'Cause Jacob got the blessing of the Lord.
verse: When Daniel had been accused
Of bein' a clandestine culprit.
King Darius did try but he could not refuse
To throw him in the Lion's pit.

And in the light of the early morning
He came to see if Daniel survived.
(Daniel 6.20)
chorus: And there was no more search in darkness,
There was an end to all work in vain,
Misunderstanding ceased forever,
Final relief from all fear and pain.
'Cause he did see,
'Cause he did see,
Because the King saw Daniel alive.
verse: When the Lord had been crucified
The disciples were close to fall.
They went on fishing in the night
But they hardly made a haul.

But in the light of the early morning
They saw Jesus standing on the shore.
(John 21.4)
chorus: And there was no more search in darkness,
There was an end to all work in vain,
Misunderstanding ceased forever,
Final relief from all fear and pain.
And they did see,
And they did see,
And they did see what all their life is for.
bridge
coda: Once in the light of the early morning
I shall see Jesus standing on the shore.
And there'll be no more search in darkness,
There'll be an end to all work in vain,
Misunderstanding ceased forever,
Final relief from all fear and pain.

Then I shall see,
I'll surely see,
Yes, I shall see what all my life was for.
