Dark As Before - Poem by Bob Gotti
In this darkened world we live, God’s Only Son was sent to give,
A Hope and Light to every nation, through The Lord’s Revelation,
Spoken of through all the ages, by Prophets and Ancient Sages,
And revealed by our God’s plan, to bring Salvation to every man.
Revealed to the Nation Israel, a peoples waiting for God to fulfill,
The many promises, to that land, yet, they would not understand,
He was their Messiah to come, and not sure, where He was from,
But, He was that promised One, not only for Israel, but everyone.
They were blinded through unbelief, so, their Nation saw no relief,
From that darkness, they were in, brought on them by all their sin.
God sent salvation to that race, who had fallen from God’s grace,
But, blinded by all their iniquity, they had eyes that could not see.
The darkness when Christ first came, in our land is quite the same,
Shifting hearts against The Lord, so revealed Truths goes ignored,
Opposing all they should’ve feared, consciences, now are seared,
So that believing in Satan’s lies, is now seen to be politically wise.
As John the Baptist paved the way, for what Jesus Christ did say,
Those of us, who are Born Again, must be God’s voice to all men,
While leading men to a second birth, before Christ returns to earth,
So others too, can have Eternal Life, with The Savior Jesus Christ.
