Light of Eternity


 Gorgeous break of day...
May we proceed in the Light of eternity!
John 12:46
I am come a light into the world, 
that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

As we navigate nuances of what has never been
As we exchange what we bear witness to, for the Unseen
As we begin another day on life’s highway, pray we
Proceed with conscience keen in the light of eternity

As we face what is waiting let the grace of God instill
More than futile debating, but dependence on His will
The taper of today is like a candle on the sea
A sallow halo hinged to the light of eternity

As we draw closer to the shore where only souls dismount
And we approach the solemn bar where we will give account
Help us, oh God to trek this sod with awed solemnity
Until hope’s flame is snuffed by the Light of eternity
