Darkened hearts in a darkened world, Needing to see the way; A Son, a star, shines its light, To the stable where He lay.

We are His children, we are His chosen, Forsaking, leaving never;Continue reading “Unbelievable Gift”

“Arise, O sun, from out the east, Give light to my creation. Arise, O man, from out the dust, Make sons and tribes and nations.” Arise did sin from Satan’s lies, And man’s own greed within. “Arise, O sea; kill all, but save, The ark and those therein.” Arise, again, did sin and sought, ToContinue reading “Arise”
