The Light Of
Throughout some years I've
When it grasped with torments,
And the pain of displacement tore,
My heart in sad laments.
It was anguish I'd never known,
With a shame I knew not,
A devastating act brought shock,
I sat crying distraught.
Blackness with gloom enveloped days,
Until I felt my life alone,
Out of the darkness came a Light,
The Light of God hence shone.
For desperate anguish was gone,
Now there was nothingness,
Nonexistent was I, but God,
Gave me His Worthiness.
Nothingness has a speck of Light,
Oh Beloved Preciousness,
God's love is powerful, Holy,
Awesome seething Brightness.
Yes, know the love of God's with you,
He'll not let you alone,
For I know that no darkness lives,
The Light of God so shone.
God's love burns away life's torments,
I thank Him for living,
Without Him I would never be,
The Light Of God's giving.
