Rejoice in the Darkness


Mark 15:33
New International Version (NIV)

The Death of Jesus

33 At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon.

Eclipsed by Love

It seems that many might think
That the Earth will soon be in a lurch
And perhaps fall from its celestial perch
When the eclipse makes the sun to shrink

The moon will come spinning around
Placing itself between us and the sun
And provide us with some spectacular fun
The effect being dark and profound

Its shadow will course over much of the planet
As it does what it has always done
Holding us in place with the help of the sun
God’s mighty team of life, we oft take for granted

So do not look up in fear today
At the sun, the moon, and the stars
Marvel instead at the Hands with the scars
That died to show us the Way

And watch and ponder the thrill
That awaits us in the heavens above
The Gift of an amazing love
Purchased so long ago on a far away hill

Your hand moves and the planets fall from the skies. You speak and kingdoms are no more. Yet we marvel most of all that You would call us friends. Be with us today and everyday. You are our Light in the darkest situations. What shall we fear?
