Light Breaks Forth

Here's a little Christmas poem in celebration of Jesus, the Light of the world. May you feel His nearness today and throughout the new year. Merry Christmas!

Light breaks forth.

Amidst our longing, grief, and brokenness. In poverty and pain.

Our sighing, dying, crying souls can barely speak His name.

We're hanging by a thread of hope - a brittle, frazzled shred.

We're bruised and tattered, torn and worn. Can't lift our weary heads.

Our hearts cry out, "How long, O Lord?" Can't wait another day.

We need You near. Come close. Lean in. Kingdom, come and stay.

Light breaks forth. 

Who is this child, this man, this God? Who steps from Glory's place?

Who leaves crowns & thrones on high to live among the fray?

Only one could give such love. Only one could pay.

And with Him brings our hope restored, fulfilled in every way.

He comes to us, our Christ, our Lord. Alone He saves the day.

Light breaks forth.
