We feared to enter in as it foretold a foreboding gloom.
As the night curtain fell,
Darkness was our doom.
Yet, lo, with holy halo crown
The moon gently shines down
To where you are prone upon the floor
And sweetly whispers to your lonely core,
“When you feel alone in the dark of night
It is important to know that the moon still shines–
A reflection of the shining sun you forgot
And fretted all your hope in the dawn was for naught.
There yet beams a white smile from the moon,
A foretaste of the golden light coming soon.”
The dawn victoriously melts away the night;
Such sweet friendship we have with the Light!
New, brand new, is now our story
In mercies of sunlit glory.
The sun never stopped brilliantly beaming
Regardless of what the night’s lies had you believing.
The moon was proof that the hope still reigned
By simply reflecting the light that it gained.
So if the sun is Jesus, the source of our Life,
Will you be His moon for someone’s hard night?
Faithfully reminding the lonely they are never alone
Till the final dawn beckons you home.
