Beyond the Star...

Beyond the star dawn draws ajar
A gate in soundless sweep  
From Heaven’s hold a fount of gold
Spills daylight to the deep
A beckoning of reckoning
Stirs in the human breast
Imploring ‘come’, for none can run
From Time’s untiring test

The morn unchains what still remains
Of all that must yet be
From babbling reams the Unknown streams
In coursing mystery
Its cutting rhyme a pantomime
Of future, present, past
Cascading where we turn to stare
At shadows it has cast

This stalwart surge of sunbeam-splurge
Gleaming on polished sky
Soon fades to banks where fallen ranks
Of soldered moments lie
The worship of our chosen love
Will save us or condemn
Beyond the star dawn draws ajar
Time’s gate to ‘try again’

Thought can unveil a dungeon-jail
Where fear’s ruthless parade
Screams satan-lies, drenching our sighs
With rash mistakes we’ve made
But God unveils what never fails
His tender-loving care
Beyond the star He draws ajar
The proof that He is there

Sometimes discouragement weighs hard
and tries to keep us down
but we must run with diligence
to win the victor's crown

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Matt.28: 19-20
