The Brighter the Light

The brighter the Light,
The more stark the dark;
The blacker the shadows
Where fear chooses to hide.

Step into the Light,
Burn away dread and fear;
Draw strength, grow in courage
In the Light of the Son.

The Night Mare

Written following this week’s Haiku Challenge on RonovanWrites – “Night and Breathe”

Cloaked in dread onyx
The Night Mare breathes down my neck
Hunting down my dreams

My Favourite Christmas Carols #11 – ‘While Shepherds Watched their Flocks by Night’

While shepherds watched
Their flocks by night
All seated on the ground
The angel of the Lord came down
And glory shone around
And glory shone around

“Fear not,” he said,
For mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds
“Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind,
To you and all mankind.”

“To you in David’s
Town this day
Is born of David’s line
The Savior who is Christ the Lord
And this shall be the sign
And this shall be the sign.”

“The heavenly Babe
You there shall find
To human view displayed
And meanly wrapped
In swathing bands
And in a manger laid
And in a manger laid.”

Thus spake the seraph,
And forthwith
Appeared a shining throng
Of angels praising God, who thus
Addressed their joyful song
Addressed their joyful song

“All glory be to
God on high
And to the earth be peace;
Goodwill henceforth
From heaven to men
Begin and never cease
Begin and never cease!”
