ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER© posted on 3/18/16 by atimetoshare.me
Through the cobwebs of existence – through the darkness of our strife,
Through the dankness of our sinning and the wickedness of life,
Through the darkest pits of hell and the helplessness we feel,
Comes a single beam of light from heaven our sinful hearts to heal,
The light grows stronger as we move to get a closer glance,
But as we reach to touch it, we’re enveloped in a trance.
It’s just within our reach we think, but no matter how we try,
We can’t escape the darkness that consumes us from all sides,
Just when we think that all is lost and relinquish every hope,
The light erases darkness and through it we can cope,
This little light from Bethlehem became a brilliant Star,
That came to earth to save the world from sin’s most deadly scar.
He came in darkness of the night, but His brilliance cannot hide,
We are redeemed by His great might. He’s always by our side.
