IT IS JESUS

View from my window -  blizzard coming on! Jan. 2011

In my heart shines Light that’s brighter than a sunrise,
It is Jesus! It is Jesus!
Never can the works of darkness with its bold lies,
Stop the radiance of this Light within my heart.

It is Jesus, It is Jesus!
He’s the Son of God! The Sun of Righteousness!
When the sun and moon and stars fade in their glory
Jesus Christ, is still the Bright and Morning Star.

Who has called us out of darkness to sing praises?
It is Jesus! It is Jesus!
For He opens eyes, forgives our sins, and saves us.
So proclaim the Light, the Way, the Truth, the Life!

It is Jesus, It is Jesus!
He’s the Son of God! The Sun of Righteousness!
When the sun and moon and stars fade in their glory
Jesus Christ, is still the Bright and Morning Star.

For He changes not, He’s not like shifting shadows.
It is Jesus! It is Jesus!
He will be your strength and comfort in life’s sorrows,
Hand in hand He’ll light your path to heaven’s home!

It is Jesus, It is Jesus!
He’s the Son of God! The Sun of Righteousness!
When the sun and moon and stars fade in their glory
Jesus Christ, is still the Bright and Morning Star.

Beautiful poem, Karin... I always enjoy reading your poems. And what a gorgeous picture... Aren't you glad you are inside and WARM and SAFE??????

We did get out today to get some groceries and run some errands. The main roads were good and the back roads were fair, due to the snow and ice.. It was nice to get out though.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

I remember being caught in the blizzard of 1976, and I didn't know what it was.

Karen said...

I agree with the others...beautiful words!

I especially loved this line...

"Never can the works of darkness with its bold lies,
Stop the radiance of this Light within my heart."


Praise the Lord!
