Extinguished Light By Brenda Drake


Extinguished Light

The Light was extinguished; blown out by sin.
A terrible darkness covered Him
The One that was pure and whiter than new fallen snow,
Was blackened, by the sin- blight of every mortal soul.
His heart was broken; crushed by the pain,
The Holy love of the Father, could not with Him remain.
Love called out “Forgive them, they know not what they do.”
His love, committed Himself, to die for me and you.
What love; what a dedicated love, that chose to die for the lost.
That in such suffering, endured the terrible defilement of the cross.
But, on the third day, there was Light.
Jesus lives again, to his dicipals delight.
He that so loved the world… loves us still.
He, that died for our sins, has His Father’s will fulfilled.
Sinful, darkened, believing- hearts, are made new and whole.
Full of light and love is the redeemed soul.
He lives! He lives! They gladly testify.
Because He lives ,He has brought His light inside.
Because He lives, the believer is new and whole,
With sweet songs of joy; the Easter message is retold.

John 9:5
As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

2 Cor 4:6
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
