Light of Life

(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

Light descended,

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.
