A great darkened globe of doom—
Astray, adrift in empty space---
Not a sparkle broke the gloom.
A dread despair depressed my soul,
A foreboding, fearful weight;
Forlorn I wondered at the sight---
What would be its awful fate??
How could it function without light?
It must surely self-destruct;
At best oblivion’s its end---
Distressed, I stood and looked.
Wait!! Something’s rising in the east---
Brilliant, shining, awesome Light---
It shines upon the darkened world---
Puts the demon dark to flight.
A mighty transformation comes
Joy and peace dispel the gloom---
Hope and love remove despair.
The Light gives light to other lights
Shining bright where ‘ere they go;
All the world is now ablaze
With the touch of Heaven’s glow.
I jump awake; Was it a dream? ---
Really felt like I was there;
How I wish I could have stayed
To see Light shine everywhere.
The Child who came on Christmas Eve
‘Round two thousand years ago
Brought life and light to sinful men:
Throughout all the world they know.
May we His people, be His light
To a world in dark despair;
This Christmas let us shine forth Christ
To all people everywhere.
