The Sunrise Is Coming

When I look at this world I feel a deep pain.

A burden in my soul.

This overwhelming sadness threatens to engulf me, to crush me with waves of despair.

Who can I trust but you?

Our Western civilization has fallen foul to false idols.

Community is replaced by screen’s of various sizes.

Friendship is reduced to a virtual status.

Yet in You I find community.

In you I find friendship.

The wife you provided, the baby on the way.

The love of this world is enmity with you.

The world’s love blows hot and cold.

A politics of hate, a muffled church, neighbourhoods of fear and pain –

Broken, All Broken!

But, Your light still shines.

Pockets of hope, sparkles in the night.

The Sunrise is coming!
