The Light

War breaks out
And people die
Children starve
And babies cry
Yet I can see a light….

Blood in the street
Death in the school
Thieves in the store
Addicts must score
Yet I can see a light

Turmoil starts
With poison darts
A gun is fired
A child is wired
Yet I can see a light

Hearts full of hate
The world ~ Hell's gate
A frightening fate
It's nearly too late
Yet I can see a light

Blackened stillness
Chronic illness
Lethal madness
Horrid sadness
Yet I can see His light

From heaven it lopes
Bursting through a cloud
Renewing our hopes
It's ever so loud
You have only to ponder
With eyes that don't wander
And you too…
can see His light…
