The True Light





The darkness is not greater than the Light
One tiny spark will pierce the shroud of night
We are not doomed to blindness and despair
See how the morning melts night’s onyx air

Time’s Shepherd tends the hours while we sleep
His Light exceeds the gloom of midnight’s deep
From Dark to light; hope’s gate is open wide
We are the sheep for which this Shepherd died

Darkness cannot remain; the Light has come
Into this world; a Babe in Bethlehem
Shepherd became a Lamb; Lamb is the Light
I AM prevails beyond the transient night

He shines into the dark; Grace and truth rend
The veil that darkness cannot comprehend
