In The Light Of The Rainbow

I never thought Iíd see a bright rainbow
in the middle of a dark, dreary night
Until I opened my eyes and heart to Jesus
he filled the darkness with brilliant light

It hovered there for my own observation
each glorious color for me to view
As I looked upon Godís creation
I pondered the meaning of each layered hue

The first color to captivate my attention
was the soft glow of the magnificent blue
Which is known to represents distance
so Lord, I know the rainbow came from you

My eyes next fell upon the golden yellow
such a warm feeling it did wrought
For we all know that the hue of yellow
is known to bring, clearness of thought

Then my gaze fixed upon the fiery red
what a definitive color, you are to see
Based on studies, of colors and symbols
that fiery red represents, security

I could not over look the color of orange
of itís beauty, I made a mental notation
It shown brightly amidst the rest
representing the love, of exploration

Along side the orange, the green stood out
Itís beauty seemed, to speak to me
As I studied this unique shade
I knew it could offer sweet harmony

The indigo seemed to leap right out at me
this color I knew, was heaven sent
For in the midst of doubt and sorrow
I can reach a spiritual attainment

The violet, the last but not second to any
itís hue alone could calm a raging sea
And bring an end to all worldly disputes
violet represents, love for humanity

Now Lord, I know you donít do anything
without a specific purpose and plan
When you speak, itís not always with words
you often use various signs to talk to man

So Iím thinking, as I reflect on the rainbow
of the promises that come from far away
I study and meditate on your words
this keeps my carnal confusion, held at bay

I have total freedom in your holy spirit
that gives me an unfaltering, eternal security
And with you guiding me day, after day
Iím free to explore your ways, and reach maturity

My soul gains strength for this journey
as my faith meets with youíre almighty ability
If ever I am in need earthly consolation
my brothers, my sisters and I, walk in harmony

As I push homeward holding onto you hand
I lack for nothing, in any circumstance
As I stay in your will, adhering to your word
you share with me, of your heavenly abundance

While having my faith based firmly in your love
there is nothing, that I can not achieve
I can love all tongues and nations of humanity
and help those who deny youÖ. to believe
