Sonrise

Sonlight breaks over the rim of Darkness,
Routing the hosts of Death and Despair.
Sonlight breaks out and the Son arises,
Shining His glory-light everywhere.

Darkness is vanquished, Hope is rekindled,
Hearts leap high with passionate Love.
Sorrow and Mourning are distant nightmares,
Shadowed and dimmmed by Sonlight above.

Sunset Imaginings

A rift of clouds is forming,
Low across the western sky.
In their midst the sun is setting
Like a baleful, glowing eye.

A dragon head my fancy forms
Amongst the greying clouds.
The sun becomes a dragon's orb,
Red glaring from the shrouds.

Still now! Do not speak or move!
The dragon's eye is turning!
North and South he bends his gaze,
All wrathful, hot and burning.

Magic falls upon the world,
A dragon spell is casting.
From that eye enchantment comes;
Doom, death, and fire blasting.

Silent earth is bathed in red,
Each grass and tree and flower
Outlined in the gory hue
That comes from dragon power.

Lo! Along the western hills
Devouring flames have started.
The world soon swept in raging fire
That dragon gaze has darted.

Behold! The eye is closing
And dragon spells are broken.
Red light fades as flames die out
And night time is awoken.

Autumn Departure Song

Some of you may remember my poem, Autumn Departure. Well, my amazing friend, Zhenya, got ahold of that poem and fitted it with a tune she composed. Then, her sister, Erin, and brother-in-law, Robert, took the song and...well, I will let you hear the result for yourself: Autumn Departure Song

Where Will We Stand?

Where will we stand when the darkness comes?
What will we do
When shadows fall
And we see all
We ever knew
Put to the test?

Where will we stand when it comes to war?
Will we bravely fight
When hope seems gone
And on and on
The hosts of night
Sweep over us?

Where will we stand when our doubts assail?
Will we still believe
That love is strong?
That we belong?
Will peace relieve
Our aching hearts?

Where will we stand when oppression comes?
Will we take the shame,
The grief and loss,
The heavy cross,
And strive to claim
A victory?

Where will we stand on the judgment day?
With our deep souls bared?
Where thoughts unsaid
And truths we fled
And sins unshared
Are brought to light.

Where will we stand when the kingdom comes?
Will our hearts embrace
A Lord long - known,
When He is shown
In splendid grace
And majesty?

Where will we stand?
