From Handel's Messiah
This aria, "The People That Walked in Darkness", not only reflects God's prophecy through Isaiah, but it is such a perfect commentary on our human condition before God sent His only Son into this world that we might be saved by faith. We did indeed walk in darkness and praise be to God that He has allowed us to see a great light in Jesus.
The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
on them has light shined.
