hope and light

To this day I have had the help that comes from God, and so I stand here testifying both to small and great, saying nothing but what the prophets and Moses said would come to pass: that the Christ must suffer and that, by being the first to rise from the dead, he would proclaim light both to our people and to the Gentiles.
Acts 26:22-23

Darkness feels dead
before the rays of sun
lift up over the horizon
and illumine what's ahead
all is changed in a new world's dawn

Those in the black
have seen a great light
and with newly given sight
in righteousness from sin turn back
a new path is known from gospel light

Death is not the end
but instead eternal life shines through
giving hope and grace to obey and endure
joy forever with God as friend
hope is real for it is known in relationship

Gospel is the hope and the light
it is the means used, message preached
it keeps us clear, reaches the unreached
it turns to day the worst of darkness in the night
in hope and light a new life is found in love with Christ
