Darkest Hour Just Before Dawn
Recorded Emmylou Harris and Ricky Skaggs
Written by Ralph Stanley
[3/4 time]

The sun is slowly sinking
C G7 C
The day is almost gone
Still darkness falls around us
C G7 C
And we must journey on

The darkest hour is just before dawn
The narrow way leads home
Lay down your soul at Jesus' feet
G7 C
The darkest hour is just before dawn

Like a shepherd out on the mountain
C G7 C
A watching the sheep down below
He's coming back to claim us
C G7 C
Will you be ready to go
