That Night

The Stars All Fell

John 8:12
New International Version (NIV)

12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”


The Stars All Fell

Long ago before we met,
I shunned your love without regret,
Some would come to tell your tale
But they would make me feel like hell,

As they would tell of eternal flames
And all the devil’s crafty games,
And try to make me come by fear
“Do it now; because death is near”,

“What if you were to die today?”,
“What do you think that god would say?”,
I did not know, I did not care,
I simply ran away from there,

Then I began to drink and drug,
I hid all my fears under that selfish rug,
Until one night in a country field
I prayed a prayer and I was healed,

It was such a simple request,
How could it bring me so much rest?,
I only asked if you were there
That you would show me that you cared,

Then suddenly the stars all fell
In blinding light, with fiery tails,
And I turned over and hid my eyes
Half expecting my demise,

But when I arose, I saw anew,
You did not hate, that was untrue,
I blamed you for what others had said,
They preached fear, but you spoke love instead,

My eyes were opened on that night,
As your true nature was in plain sight,
When I saw you as you really are,
You are love and never far,

So when I stand before your throne
And I must face you all alone,
I will not tremble, I will not shake,
This simple statement I will make,

“Lord, I know that your love is true”,
“And there is nothing that I can do”,
“You proved it to me on that night”,
“When the stars all fell and gave off your light”.

Father,

Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus to rescue us. There is nothing we can do, but believe You sent Him and that He was resurrected.
