Like a sunrise deep within
Comes the voice of my Lord
Not until the light of the dawn
      did I realize the depths of my night

My mind was clouded
My heart in darkness
My soul parched 
           – with only desert winds

 Like a sunrise deep within…

A light filtering through the clouds
Breaking the blackness 
           waking the soul
Penetrating the well-laid barriers
Seeping into the hidden wells of my fears

…Comes the voice of my Lord
 

Like a sunrise deep within
Comes the voice of my Lord
Not until the light of the dawn
      did I realize the depths of my night
                                   by Phyllis Ducey 


I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.  John 12:46

Phyllis - your poem reaches deep into my heart. I am going to print this out, tuck it into my Bible, and read it to remind myself how He will pull us out of that dark place every time.

A wonderful poem. I have been in some pretty dark places, and praise God for His glorious light that lifts my eyes back to Him and leads me into the light.
