Light Now Free!

From Luke 24:6-7: “Remember how He told you, while He was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be handed over to the hands of sinners and be crucified and on the third day rise again.”

Enemy’s motives

Darkness full of fraud

Life spiraling down

Behind his facade


Trapped, with no escape

Caught in evil’s net

Each wave crashing down

Sinking deeper yet


Flowing river’s faith

Never left alone

Christ walks on water

Freed from this millstone


Hearing trumpet sound

Redemption’s surge swells

Blessed assurance

Now soul shall be well


Blood pays any cost

Sins nailed to this tree

Witness empty tomb

Rising, Light now free!

The hymn “When Peace, Like a River” inspired the writing of this poem.  The lyrics were written by Horatio Gates Spafford in 1873.  The song is sometimes titled from a line in the popular refrain, “It Is Well With My Soul.”
