I Am the Light

To the crowd
gathering in His midst,
"I am the light".
And darkness tries to hide.
He offers,
opening the palms of His hands,
a way in
from the shadows.

To the crowd
is promised
no more darkness.
Separate your hearts
from the world of sin.
No longer
should the shadows be loved.
Your deeds are already shown,
forgiveness
is yours to accept.

To the crowd
bathed in beatitudes
on the side of a hill,
"You are the light."
Hide nothing of God,
place His light where it may be seen,
light the world
with Him
and darkness will cringe.


Inspired by John 8:12 & Matthew 5:14
