(By Rachel Joyce)
In the beginning, was the Word,
The life-giving, light-bringing
Word of God,
From whose voice, darkness fled
And all that is came into being.
The One who was good created
Good, and was not taken unawares
When sin entered,
Severing us from Him and plunging
Us into darkness and loss.
God had foreseen and He had planned
Our redemption, so into the darkness
The radiance of God’s glory,
Whose name was Jesus.
He could not be extinguished,
Even in death, He shone forth,
And lit the way
To true life, so we could be in the light
Of His glorious presence eternally.
