You have Called us (out of darkness) - DeShazo / Nystrom

People walking from dark forest into the light -Chorus: You have called us out of darkness, Out of darkness into Your marvelous light, You have saved us from the darkness, We rejoice in Your power and might. 1 We are a chosen race, A royal priesthood by Your grace, We are a holy nation set apart for You. 2 We are to take Your light To ev'ry nation, tongue and tribe, So they may see Your glory shining through our lives.
This contemporary-Christian-music style song about vocation and responding to God's call was written by American worship leader and song-writers Lynn DeShazo and Martin Nystrom (b 1956).   It was first released in 1990 by Integrity! Music.  

It has since been recorded by artists including Graham Kendrick.

The song was included in Songbook 5 (Hosanna!), but no other sources of sheet music have been located

You have called us out of darkness,
