When God Dawns

The sun rises every day

and sets again.

But when God dawns upon a soul,

He turns His eyes into the darkness,

and rests His gaze

on the one

and steps toward him purposefully,

the glow of His glory

pushing back the dark—

slowly, steadily—

as He prepares the way

to the perfect moment.

Then from beyond the mountains

too high for us to climb,

He leaps across

in the sudden, blazing joy

of love accomplished—

the golden sheen

of a better day—

for where the LORD dawns,

night has no claim.
