Lantern Night

November 18, 2020

FREE WRITING

11
When darkness seems to
Take power over light
And goodness seems to falter
Kindness to take flight

I know there'll be a turn
And love will rise up
But till then we'll keep our hope
And refuse to give up

'Cause courage to speak
Is a lantern in the night
Courage to hold strong
Is a shining light

And courage to sing still
Despite an evil day
Is courage to win yet
And refuse Dark its way

When sunlight breaks through
A star-held sky
And Heaven comes down
With a victory cry

I know we'll raise our heads
And smile once more
For we've been shown the way, 
But He is the Door

'Cause courage to believe
Is a lantern in the night
Courage to be bold
Is a shining light

And courage to laugh yet
Despite an evil day
Is courage to rejoice still
And refuse Dark its way.

    Re: Thanks! Gotta love that good old celestial imagery.
    Oh okay sounds good. I'd have to play both with and without my glasses to see which one works for me better (I have fairly decent vision but have trouble with details at a distance).

    I love the third stanza that you repeat at the end. It is really inspiring.
