THE MORNING STAR
O dark, dark, dark - irrecoverably dark:
Darkness that can be felt invests the land;
Darkness that can be felt encumbers man.
But we have light in which we are apart:
The Morning Star arising in our hearts!
The day is near - while we await its start
Jesus the Lord has this peculiar charm:
The Morning Star, brilliantly coruscant.
Among our pressures the Lord Himself imparts
To overcomers joys that are sure to last:
Imparts Himself so that, exuberant,
They praise Him as the Bright and Morning Star.
