ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
This re-post has become a mainstay to my New Year’s wishes for you. Hope you enjoy and have a blessed New Year.
Through the cobwebs of existence – through the darkness of our strife –
Through the dankness of our witness, through the wickedness of life,
Through the deepest, 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 bend 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, relinquishing all 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 at our side.
