Shadows In The Night

When the shadows of the night
tiptoe through your halls
and the whispers of the wind
still the voices in the wall

Cry out, oh you wanderers
of dark and ghastly places
withdraw from this expanse
depart, oh dreadful faces

Banish all the demons
who are clinging to this place
send them to the outlaying
with dignity and grace

Raise ye, all the banner
of liveliness and light
send it soaring outward
with your very might

Soothe your shivering self
with His peace and loving grace
and place a sacred blessing
to hold upon this space

Return to peaceful slumber
knowing light hath vanquished dark
rest now securely in His arms
wrapped safely in His Holy spark
