WHERE DWELLS DARKNESS, JOB 38:31

In the shadow of the cross

No darkness dwell!

Light of God’s love dispels all sin

Saving men from Hell!

.

.

Ships are led by stars by night!

Constellations show,

Pleiades and Orion tell

Pilot where to go!

.

.

Job and Amos knew long ago (*)

Inspiration divine!

God who created everything

Reveals those stars that shine.

.

.

Where does darkness dwell?

When clouds hide the light from view?

Clouds of doubt can lead astray

We know well!  It is true!

.

.

Doubt God created?  You may

Live for this life alone,

No Spirit, Soul, just body exists,

Like, little more than a clone!

.

.

They “Hate light whose deeds are evil.”

Darkness suits them fine!

Knowing where sin leads, still they ponder

Hating God, The Divine!

.

.

Some “Hate light whose deeds are evil.”

Darkness suits them contained.

Deep in the heart of rejecters of Truth

Where sin sadly remains!

.

.

Determined my course long ago!

Small churches, three-year man.

Parishes, twelve in all for me,

Bring some growth where I can!

.

.

Closed a few where towns had died out,

Sure, I made some mistakes!

I admitted, God forgave!

Guess that is what it takes!

.

.

Faithful young wife, wife wise beyond years!

Determined to make it go!

When going seemed most difficult!

We both needed to grow!

.

.

Where darkness dwells in the heart

Discerning eyes still see

A heart that needs The Crucified

To set that Spirit free!

.

.

Darkest night to brightest day!

In that bright land above!

Sin passé outmoded up there

Where gladness reigns and love!

.

.

Little souls get used to dark,

Accustomed to their sin!

“All those souls who land in Hell

Could fit on the head of a pin!” (**)

.

.

(*) Any place away from earth is up!

(**) C. S. Lewis quoting George MacDonald
