The Gray, the Dark, the Light

This morning in south-central Pennsylvania, the gray attempts to block the rising sun . . .

The heavy gray lifts up its shield

I watch and wonder who will win? The darkness or the light?

To block the rising light.

I watch and wonder who will win,

The daytime or the night?

 

And in this battle can I see

A combat that is higher?

Of clashing swords of kings and lords,

The Truth against The Liar?

 

Or does this gray reflect to us

Our hearts that are not right?

Dear hearts that hesitate between

The choice of dark or light?

 

I see another gray surround

The suffering of One

One stabbed and punched and pierced and pained,

Fighting for the Sun.

 

And now that risen Daystar shines

In hearts that cheer for light,

And in the glory of the cross,

In robes of shining white

 

We ride beside the King of Kings

We ride beside the King of Kings, Arrayed with shield and sword. And cast that dragon down to bow, To Jesus Christ the Lord!

Arrayed with shield and sword

And cast that dragon down to bow

To Jesus Christ the Lord!

 

So do not let your heart feel sad

When gray erects its shield.

We take the power of the cross

Into the battlefield.

 

The Valley of Decision fills

With souls so dark and gray,

But we hold high the cross of Christ

So they can see The Way—

 

The Way to God, The Way to Truth,

The Valley of Decision fills with souls so dark and gray, But we hold high the cross of Christ so they can see The Way.

The Way to peace within,

The way out of the Valley of Decision

That they’re in.

 

And when that final soul comes to

Receive the Christ as Lord

The trumpet of our God will sound—

We’ll put away the sword!

 

And caught up  to the skies with Him

And caught up to the skies with Him, We’ll be part of His-Story, When the Captain of Salvation Brings His Many Sons to GLORY!

We’ll be part of His-story,

When the Captain of Salvation

Brings His many sons to glory!

 

HALLELUJAH!!

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.
