“Take no credit, take no blame, take nothing from the world
Simply stand and speak, love and serve
For you are the light of the world”
We yearn for your appearing; for your revealing Lord Jesus!
Though yes, you are already here
“I will never leave you”
Yes, O Lord
But still we long for consummation.
There is a glow on the horizon that foretells of a coming sunrise
There are also low lying clouds that obscure it from view
Yet all around, its light has been advancing;
Nighttime indigo to morning blue;
Soon golden yellow white.
We long for your appearing Lord Jesus!
Yes we do!
The sun is risen, and though it hides itself for now
You are here!
Behind the low lying clouds,
Your glorious, golden explosion might seem delayed … still
Even in our longing, we know you are here;
Causing our daily lives to fill the morning sky with Light,
As indigo gives way to blue.
