Romans 13:12

The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

Godfrey Thring used active-tense verbs to convey a vigor and energy in his interpretation of this passage, “Cast Away the Works of Darkness.”

Verse 1
Cast away the works of darkness,
Haste to gird your armor on,
Ere the noon hath lost its brightness,
And the evening is begun.

Chorus
Cast away the works of night,
Walk as children of the light;
Cast away the works of darkness,
Walk as children of the light.

Verse 2
Cast away the works of darkness,
Light is dawning from on high;
Christ the Daystar shines above you,
Drives the shadows from the sky.

Verse 3
Cast away the works of darkness,
Ere your fleeting breath hath fled;
For again the Lord is coming,
Judge alike of quick and dead.
