From Darkness to Light

They have said the day is coming soon They have said the day is near now One day is a thousand years, a thousand years, one day Divine perspective versus human pride and knowledge Kingdoms turn to stone Nations burn at the hand of man There's a crack in the sky Knees will bow as the light blinds our eyes Come, see the greatest show in history A rumbling across the sky Kingdoms turn to stone Nations burn at the hand of man There's a crack in the sky Knees will bow as the light blinds our eyes A triumphant return and from darkness we'll turn He has come, we have chosen, it's time Descending from the throne King of kings and Lord of lords Mountains are crumbling, waves rolling high From the horizon, in the blink of an eye A final crescendo, the tide rises high He finally opens the gate in the sky
2.
You're the meaning, on You I'm leaning You're the reason why I'm breathing Every morning, a new dawning Every day, another drawing You have given, I have taken You sacrificed though I've forsaken Always learning, always yearning For Your love, forever reaching for You You are the air that I breathe You are the truth that I seek I believe, I believe in You I've been searching, I've been wanting Confirmation and affection Through the fires, my heart's desires Seeking treasures that I admire My imperfections and introspections Through grace and patience, transformation What I deserve, You have bled Drying all the tears I shed, oh...
3.
Out on a journey Out in the fields across the land Looking for answers Chasing the wind again No one can stop me No one in heaven or on earth Knowing the answers Raising my throne for all to see How long can I hold on Am I down on my knees again? In silence, I wonder From where is my aid to come Gazing out in the sky Through deserts I wander From where is water to flow Has the river run dry? Out of the ashes Into the fire, once again Will I be wiser Will I surrender, once again Yours is the Kingdom All power and glory to You Forever and ever So let it be done, for all to see Father forgive me I am down on my knees again
4.
Arrows are flying across the sky Piercing, sedating the spirit within The venom is spreading, our minds go numb Inhaling a spirit, deceitful disguise Bring us the light, bring on the fire In the darkest night, lifting us higher Put your trust in the Lord In the strength of the belt of truth We put on the armor of God and His righteousness Shapeshifter, liar, chameleon So many names, so many costumes Who has the gift to distinguish them all? Now is the time, now is the season

MNFST 04:26
When black and white are mixed to gray it's time to rise Unpleasant truths are traded for comforting lies Kings and priests with strings attached like marionettes The walls he built to keep us safe are now seen as a threat Rise above the ashes Shine with his living flame Break the silence once and for all I believe in the holy Father Who gave his only Son I believe in the holy Spirit Who raised him from the dead A stormy sea A distant light to guide us home A vivid hope In this world so monochrome An endless love in each drop of blood How can I be ashamed? Die from myself And rise in him Born again to proclaim I'm not ashamed of Jesus Who gave his life for me I believe in the resurrection The King is coming back
6.
He saved us from the war that tore the land And we sing our song to the Holy One Hallelujah, Hallelujah Amen

Sail On 05:43
Another day goes by Another lullaby Another dream that got away There has been time to cry There will be time to die We’ve all been living the lie and gone astray Another wind of change Another flash of light Another trend goes by, play the game Another wicked way Another blaming game to play Don’t let the flood carry you away Sail on when tides are rising One way, eternal, forever and ever Sail on when winds are changing Guided by spirit, the word, by the compass This is the time to kneel This is the time to heal What was lost is to be found Searching high and low for wisdom, gold and silver across the land All shall perish in the end Sail on when tides are rising Guided by spirit, the word, by the compass Sail on when winds are changing One way, eternal, forever and ever An ancient, wooden cross He died and rose for us Through final sacrifice, He took our sins Forgive them for they know not what they do Forever lasting, forever free
8.
Days are passing by, now I understand No quick solution, I’ve learned my lesson well Through the motions, challenges arise Fading illusions, You opened up my eyes I will follow, sing and give my praise Face tomorrow I will follow, sing and give my praise No more sorrow Listen to me now I’ve got something to say Jesus is my King No matter what they say I will follow, sing and give my praise Face tomorrow I live to see Your face I will follow, sing and give my praise No more sorrow I will follow, sing and give my praise Face tomorrow I live to see Your face I will follow, sing and give my praise No more sorrow Surrender to Your grace
9.
In this time We gather around a thousand faces But do we care? In this time We’re following a thousand traces But do we dare? We carry our dreams in our hearts For what they were once back in time Surrounded by emptiness and space, denying the void in our hearts Hanging by a thread, I’m praying When life has run aground and winds have turned I live and I learn through deserts, sorrow and despair. Life is frail Love is pain when night is falling But strong as steel I hold my breath Waiting for the phone to ring Time is standing still I pray in the night Seconds like hours, passing by And she saw the angels standing By your side Hanging by a thread, I’m praying When life has run aground and winds have turned. I live and I learn through deserts, sorrow and despair Hanging by a thread, I’m praying I’m begging You to please, take my hand I kneel and I trust in all the promises You gave I open my eyes Freed from the burden, carried within And I thank You for showing me the way From darkness to light

about

Narnia’s new album; From Darkness To Light is the band’s eight studio album, and a natural sequel to the previous, self-titled album, from the band’s return and 20th anniversary in 2016.

The spark that Narnia lit on last year’s live album "We Still Believe - Made in Brazil", has followed the band into the studio, where this energy has been channeled and structured into a long parade of nine songs.
With the musical roots remaining deep in melodic metal, the band has both stretched on to a modern sound where the guitars still dominate, but also allows analogue 70/80’s analogue synthesizers to take place in the soundscape.

The lyrics are noticeably important to the band and in true Narnia spirit this heritage has been well managed and further refined.

Christian Liljegren sings with such passion that it is hard not to be touched by the vocals. This album is also produced by Narnia’s guitar virtuoso CJ Grimmark, who also has written most of both lyrics and music. It is mixed by the band’s sound engineer Viktor Stenquist, and mastered by Jens Bogren, Fascination Street Studios.

The band’s first tour in South America in 2017, made noticeable marks and you can hear this new reignition has come to stay. It is clearly hearble in Andreas ”Habo” Johansson’s energetic drumming, which is performed with both power and precision.

With a keyboardist as Martin Härenstam, the Narnia has the caliber of another solo virtouso in the band. The synthesizers are there all the time and commute between complementing the sound image and making exciting excursions, a bit like a perfectly balanced dance in harmony with the guitar. The band’s latest addition, bassist Jonatan Samuelsson, has merged well into the band and has also contributed with background vocals, playing Taurus bass pedal, songwriting and graphic design of cover.

It is a united and wholehearted band that now is releasing a new studio album! "From Darkness To Light" was released in connection with the tour in South America, together with Stryper.
