Treasure Island

Royston Allen

Beyond the deepest darkness

Beyond the deepest darkness there shines a great light
inextinguishably burning there so bright.
But the evil underlings of darkness joined as one
in their hatred against this brightly burning One

They were determined all of His goodness to quell
so they dragged Him into that pit of death and hell.
For the grave had now become their new battle ground
as all of Satan's minions gathered around.

Alone He stood firm and Satan's army engaged.
as in death's sepulchre that mighty battle raged
For His soul was ravaged as onward Satan fought
hoping to find one sin as he clawed and he wrought.

Ruthlessly and fervently for any sin they sought
as deeper and deeper into His soul they fought.
His strength was all dried up in His great weariness.
His tongue stuck to His mouth and still onward He pressed.

For three long days and nights without respite He fought
with those unearthly foes He wrestled and He wrought.
Satan roared and clawed at His body in despair
but he could find no sin and could not hold Him there.

Christ's victory over sin destroyed all Satan's powers
and won the fight with death that final foe of ours.
Then out from the tomb in triumph He arose
with victory and supremacy over all His foes.

Now this eternal Light, this Uncreated Beam
in which the Glory of God's greatness can be seen
is shining through Jesus Christ and burning so bright.
A pure and holy and an everlasting light

A light that's so much brighter than the noonday sun
radiates from the face of this Righteous One
As now this uncreated Light on earth does shine
and our earthly life can be enriched by the Divine.

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
