In Heaven as On Earth

by on September 6, 2017

At night the sky is dark,

but there are darker shadows still;

Silhouettes against the heavens,

standing on the earth and reaching high.

They mock the darkness there

by revealing the light above,

And testify to the hope of providence and redemption

as the fifth day of creation dawns.

I see this tree of life

in the darker part of darkness,

and recognize myself

crucified with Christ.

I hope that I will rise

in the morning with the Light,

When the shadow returns to dust beneath my feet at noon,

And my whole body glimmers in God.
