And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day

Genesis 1:3-5


The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 

Romans 13: 11-12



 Dark to Light


Trying to hide me;

I run,

Shadows find me.

Darkness disperses,

I cannot escape, 

But dawn

Is on

The way.


O Light, come quickly;

Reach into the depths of me.

Darkness says

It will vacate You.

You say 

It’s making room 

For You.


Night, trying to 

Beat me

Reduce me

Kill me. 

Light, coming to

Wake me

Save me

Clean me.


I cling 

To Light.

I survive 

The night.


Dusk to dawn,

How strong the Light!

Even in darkness
