Darkness Has Faded

Dawn that Ends Our Darkness.

Darkness Has Faded is set to Christe Sanctorum, an old French church melody first published in the Paris Antiphoner (1681). The words are by the Scottish Priest, theologian, and hymn writer: James Quinn, S.J. It was first published in 1969 as part of 'New Hymns for All Seasons'. In the Liturgy of the Hours, Darkness Has Faded is used during Ordinary Time for Morning Prayer.
