"darkness is overcome by light"

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
~John 1:5

The presence of Jesus transforms everything: darkness is overcome by light; vain labor is made once again fruitful and promising; the sense of fatigue and abandonment gives way to a new élan, and to the certainty that He is with us.
If it may seem, by a superficial glance, that the shadows of evil and the weariness of everyday life have the upper hand, the Church knows with certainty that the light of Easter shines with undimming brilliance on all those who follow the Lord Jesus.
~Pope Francis, 4/10/16 Regina Caeli
God from God,
Light from Light,
true God from true God!
O come,
let us walk in the light of the Lord!
