Great Darkness Will Embark


Insensitivity to wrong
Deadens a nation to Decay
And then Evil thrives among
Their young people today.

Woe to them who mark
Obvious Evil as right!
Great darkness will embark
And they will lose their sight.

Woe to those who call Evil good
The LORD, He sees their heart!
Destruction will be their food
When God's wrath tears them apart!

But I will speak His Truth
And defy their vain Deceit!
God bless these words with His fruit
I pronounce His Word is complete!

ISAIAH 5: 20-21

'Woe to those who call evil good and good evil,
Who put darkness for light and light for darkness,
Who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
And clever in their own sight.'

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
