Waiting On The Night To Fall

April 9, 2020—

Today’s song of the day by Casting Crowns is a valuable warning that when we are not vigilant, sin and temptation creep up on us: “Waiting on the Night to Fall”

He knows you have the answers

But truth lies dusty on your shelf

And the sword that you could slay him with

Has become an ornament and nothing else

Today, as we approach Jesus’s death on Good Friday, let us remember why He had to die for us and resolve to fight back against the dark, with His help.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

There's an old man living
In the back of your woods tonight
You forgot he was even there
But you've never slipped his mind
He's living off of scraps of you
You never knew you left behind
And as the sun goes down
He rises with a smile

He's waiting on the night to fall
The old man's coming to call
But you don't see the writing on the wall
He'll never step out in the light
No, he's just biding time
And while you slumber
He's gonna come and take it all
He's waiting on the night to fall
He's waiting on the night to fall

He knows you have the answers
But truth lies dusty on your shelf
And the sword that you could slay him with
Has become an ornament and nothing else
You could put him back down in his hole in the ground
But he knows you never will
He's been around so long
You got used to the smell

He's waiting on the night to fall
The old man's coming to call
But you don't see the writing on the wall
He'll never step out in the light
No, he's just biding his time
And as you slumber
He's gonna come and take it all
He's waiting on the night to fall
He's waiting on the night to fall

He knows he'll never have your soul
But he will gladly rob you blind
While you're feasting at his table
He'll tie your hands and numb your mind
He'll take you farther than you want to go
He'll keep you longer than you want to stay
And it will cost you
More than you ever thought you'd pay

He's waiting on the night to fall
The old man's coming to call
But you don't see the writing on the wall
He'll never step out in the light
No, he's just biding his time
And as you slumber
He's gonna come and take it all
He's waiting on the night to fall
He's waiting on the night to fall
He's waiting on the night
He's waiting on the night to fall
The old man's coming to call
But you don't see,
You don't see, the writing on the wall
Oh, he's waiting on the night
He's waiting on the night to fall
He's waiting on the night to fall
