The Morning Sky!
by louis gander
2/01/2014 / Salvation
My sleepy eyes were no disguise
for soul in such despair.
There's no defense. It made no sense
and midnight didn't care.
The days flew past, they didn't last
and darkness made me frown.
Sin filled my mind and I was blind.
Vast blackness weighed me down.
My futile ways brought wasted days
and I began to cry.
So sad because my story was -
and I began to die...
Awake, I shook! The morning took
me largely by surprise.
I felt great shame, repentance came
and grace drew me to rise.
Yes, Jesus lives and He forgives!
He makes my spirit whole!
And all the while, you'll see my smile
from such a sunlit soul!
And it awakes as Jesus takes
my burdens by and by.
The brilliance of my God above
now lights the morning sky!
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NASB)
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature;
the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
