Satisfying our need to express grief in the midst of loss and suffering, A Light in Darkness provides memorable melodies and well-crafted messages to serve the needs of assemblies as well as individuals. This collection highlights M.D. Ridge’s trademark style of strong, scripturally-based music by expanding the available music accompaniment for funeral services, Lent, Easter and other liturgies throughout the year.

Among the many original compositions is the breakout track “In Exile/En Exilio.” A masterful adaptation and combination of Psalms 13 and 137, this song has different melodies for both the Spanish and English texts that can be sung individually or simultaneously to create a haunting, harmonious effect.

Whether used for liturgy or personal listening, reflection or comfort, A Light in Darkness allows expression of lament while leading mourners to hope in the God who wipes away every tear.
