The scriptures tell us stories of the past,
But deeper looks reveal much more than that.
In Babylon the Jews were free at last,
Yet augured future times we can look at.
The Jews had wished that their Messiah come,
And many thought these verses prophecy,
Yet when the Light of God had scarce become,
They nailed Him hand and feet on that cruel tree.
And now we see a darkness cover Earth,
The sin that people carry darker still,
But Jesus is the Light to bring new birth,
His glory seen through those who do His will.
Arise and shine! The Lord will come again!
His Light now lives in you and will remain!
1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come,
and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
and gross darkness the people:
but the LORD shall arise upon thee,
and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
Isaiah 60:1-2 KJV
