illuminant




Where timeless
praise entertains days
and love-filled lives
bloom and never fade,
where warmth and comfort
clothe and keep
and fellowship spreads
like an Autumn blanket of gold.
Where you and I and us and them
are one in wonder,
won in joy
and all, it seems,
is illuminescent light.
Where no shade or shadow
hides ambushing, hateful, hurts
nor greed nor pride
need constant feed.
Where all imagination's tides
fall short of reality
and ‘You are’ becomes ‘I AM’,
the passing curtain lifted
reveals worship unconfined.

Let's all raise our candle
and celebrate light
a flickering festival
of hopefilled delight.
Tiny flames joining
together as one,
a lighthouse lantern
illuminant Son.

Breathtaking! Reminds me of an old hymn - "the Light of the world is Jesus."
