Still Inherit the Dawn

When the cool breeze succeeds the heat of day
And stars freckle the now darkening sky
May these words be the words I know and say
'The darkest nights still inherit the dawn'

When the night sets in all throughout the land
And trepidation of darkness looms nigh
Oh, Lord, may Your wisdom be close at hand
'The darkest nights still inherit the dawn'

When I stagger within the shadows of night
Not knowing any answers to my cries
I will search for answers... Wait for the light
The darkest nights still inherit the dawn

When I feel like giving up on this road
And feel like saying my lonely 'goodbyes'
Still if great is the burden and the load
The darkest nights still inherit the dawn

When all lies upon me... Nothing is right
May I remember Your Word never lies
And, hallelujah, Your grace is in sight
The darkest nights still inherit the dawn

Poem of the Day

poet Edward Thomas

Like the touch of rain she was
On a man's flesh and hair and eyes
When the joy of walking thus
Has taken him by surprise:

With the love of the storm he burns,
