ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
Through the cobwebs of existence – through the darkness of our strife,
Through the dankness of our sinning, through the wickedness of life,
Through the eternal pits of hell and the helplessness we feel,
A single beam of light from heav’n will hear our final appeal.
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, we surrender every hope,
The light erases the darkness, gives reason for us to cope,
This little light from Bethlehem became a radiant star,
Who came to earth to save the world from sin’s conspicuous scar.
The star that shone like heaven’s best, leads us to God’s only Son,
Our Savior, God, Immanuel, eternity He has won,
We are redeemed by His great might. He always will abide,
He came in darkness of the night, but brilliance He cannot hide.
