8-21 The Sun Shall Be Darkened

This selection is pure coincidental with today’s eclipse! Just was in the alphabetical rotation!

…the sun will be darkened…

—Mk. 13:24

 

We peer through the TV pane

At refugees in flight

From men with brutal reign

 

Who shoot and kill, with disdain,

With gasoline, ignite…

And Evil goes insane.

 

One cries out to God in vain;

One praises God outright—

As history refrains.

 

Of men’s hearts—who can explain?

A blazing gorge, alight,

Burning through deepest pain.

 

Eons ago, one was slain

As afternoon turned night

And in a tomb, was lain.

 

God lifted Him up, again,

So He became men’s light

And washed away hate’s stain.
