Illumination


The radiant Sun brings light to the day
And chases away night’s darkened skies
Revealing beauty that was hidden therein
Illuminating God’s marvelous design

But, the night is also blessed with its light
That gleams in the dark, ethereal expanse
The heavenly bodies that glimmer so bright
Illumine the blue with their warm radiance

Our learning requires an additional light
Imparted by those trained to edify
Our minds with essential and cultural facts
To illumine an, otherwise, uninformed life

Then, there’s the light most special of all
The light of the world, the redemption of man
The Son is the light that releases from sin
And illumines the soul as no other light can
