TITLE: Red Blood Turns Black Sin into White

Itís amazing how much light a candle will produce
Chasing away darkness swift as can be
Such a tiny flame but so productive
Just like one drop of Jesusí blood for me

That one drop cleansed me completely
It took no more, no less
Whether it did what it was intended or not
I know that I donít ever have to guess

God said He would send His Son
He would shed His blood for my sin
He also said that He cannot lie
If I believe I will be born again

I believe He gave Jesus as a gift to the world
He was crucified just like God had said
He did what was promised if I would believe
I know on that cross is where His blood was shed

The drop destined for me fell so free
It cleansed me from the blackness of sin
Lit my world with cascades of illumination
Just like a candle that burns within

Jesus is the reason for my well lit life
The red of his blood turned my black into white
I should be burning just like that candle
Shining like the sun to help end someoneís dark night

This beautiful poem reads like a devotional. A wonderful reminder of the sacrifice that freed us all.

Beautiful imagery with the candle and the drop of blood.

Perhaps a tweak of the meter to make this flow more smoothly?

I love your title. Have you stopped by the new "Master Class" on poetry on the message boards? We'd love to have you!

Very simplistic and beautiful. I especially liked the last stanza.
