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
