Today... 'The Great Light'
Light from heaven much brighter than the sun
brilliantly shines from the Heavenly One
His eyes were glowing as blue as sapphire
and His feet were ablaze like bronze on fire
He’s the One in whom the angels rejoice.
Like the sound of many waters is His voice
The hair on his head is whiter than snow
and He’s dressed in a robe that seems to glow.
Who is this glorious One shining so bright?
The people in darkness have seen His light
Jesus of Nazareth God’s Only Son
The Lord Almighty and The Holy One

Poet's Notes about The Poem
'Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali,
the way to the sea, along the Jordan,
Galilee of the Gentiles—
the people living in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of the shadow of death
a light has dawned.'
From that time on Jesus began to preach, 'Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.'
All quotations ©NIV
The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting a glorious
aspect of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
“The Great Light”
