From Colossians 1:13-14 “He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”

From the Creator, comes the day’s light

Why then, is there perpetual night?


Sin-filled darkness, traverses borders

Nations breathing endless disorders


Not a single country shall be spared

Few if any, seem ready . . . prepared


Partisan turmoil ignites unrest

Another sleepless night, minus rest


Social illness parks at each corner

Past ills, leaving many a mourner


Violence, injustice never pause

Out of this gloom, marches a new cause


Shroud of night’s blackness, tearing apart

Light conquers night, crashing our Lord’s heart


Blood-stained Cross, now-empty tomb proclaim

Son of Man, Son of God lights new flame

From Revelation 22:5:  “And there will be no more night; they need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.”
