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

This is a contemporary-Christian-music style song about vocation and responding to God's call. 

The song 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 signer/songwriter Graham Kendrick - and some people incorrectly attribute the song him, because of this recording.

The song was included in Songbook 5 (Praise and Worship) published by Hosanna! Music in 1991.  So far, no other sources of sheet music have been located.

Chorus:
You have called us out of darkness,
Out of darkness into Your marvellous light,
You have saved us from the darkness,
We rejoice in Your power and might.

1 We are a chosen race ...

2 We are to take Your light ...

See more ...


KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
-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.
