This Night - Part 5, Days of Light

This Night
by Melissa Campbell

Do you hear them?
Angel octaves pealing
A Capella joy o'er the flocks
This night.

Do you see Him?
No longer a babe, He
Reigns King of kings; Shepherds the World
With light.

Reach out...
Do you receive?
God-treasure hid in jars,
Forgiveness for those who forgive
This night.

Come to...
Do you believe?
Sons and daughters arise
When Emmanuel crams souls replete
With light.

Give praise...
Do you join in?
With mouth confess
God's glory 'cross the earth
Like calm waters cover the seas
This night.

Today is Day 5 in the Days of Light series.  Please join me for the next 3 days as I continue to light a candle in words to highlight the Coming of our Lord as celebrated by some in Advent and The Festival of Lights.

  1. both peace and power in your words...amazing my friend.

  2. Of course the words are beautiful. The progression is so subtle it only sunk in when I read it twice.

    My favorite:

    "Forgiveness for those who forgive" - we always forget this one (MT 6:14-15)

    Merry Christmas - and thank you.


I welcome and appreciate your kind words and comments.
