Through the black shadows of the night
A myriad stars cast their radiant light.
On every sleeping soul lost in the dark
Of hopeless sin and lives so stark:
Your greatness shines.
An ice-covered summit towers to the sky
With majestic crags soaring far up high.
To all preoccupied on empty plains below
Not lifting eyes to the heights they could know:
Your power echoes.
Constant crashing waves assault the shore
Their surge and ebb a steady roar.
Around each person who trails those sands
And a fleeting moment in wonder stands:
Your immortality flows.
Thunder rumbles as the lightning’s wrath
Lights up the sky in a jagged path.
To those who quake in its grip of primal fear
Over the storm’s fury rings a warning clear:
Your judgement tolls.
A prism of colour arcs through the rain
The promise that sunlight will follow again.
For despair-filled lives weighed down by grief
The hint of assurance that pain is but brief:
Your hope glimmers.
Autumn leaves rustle in a gentle breeze
As an unseen force enfolds the trees.
To those who lift faces at its tender caress
The unknown embrace of arms seeking to bless:
Your love whispers.
Creation’s voices all proclaim
“Your King is here, cry to His name!”
A heart heeds its call, an awe-filled “Ohhh…”
And into one life truth starts to flow.
Your joy dances.
