Sung during our Lenten concert in Timaru. The arrangement is by Michael F. McConnell - Choirmaster for over forty years (and still going!) at St. Joseph's Cathedral, Dunedin, N.Z. This is a hymn about the triumph of Christ over Satan. Gabriel's message to Mary, and Mary's subsequent "Yes", is the dawn of our redemption - "Out of darkness brings our Day." This opens the way to heaven...

Gabriel's message does away
Satan's curse and Satan's sway,
out of darkness brings our Day:

so, behold,
all the gates of heaven unfold.

He that comes despised shall reign;
he that cannot die, be slain;
death by death its death shall gain: Refrain

Weakness shall the strong confound;
by the hands, in grave clothes wound,
Adam's chains shall be unbound. Refrain

By the sword that was his own,
by that sword, and that alone,
shall Goliath be o'erthrown: Refrain

Art by art shall be assailed;
to the cross shall Life be nailed;
from the grave shall hope be hailed: Refrain
