The Morning Sky!
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Louis Gander

The Morning Sky!

My sleepy eyes were no disguise

for soul in such despair.

There's no defense.  It made no sense

and midnight didn't care.


The days flew past, they didn't last

and darkness made me frown.

Sin filled my mind and I was blind.

Vast blackness weighed me down.


My futile ways brought wasted days

and I began to cry.

So sad because my story was -

and I began to die...


Awake, I shook!  The morning took

me largely by surprise.

I felt great shame, repentance came

and grace drew me to rise.


Yes, Jesus lives and He forgives!

He makes my spirit whole!

And all the while, you'll see my smile

from such a sunlit soul!


And it awakes as Jesus takes

my burdens by and by.

The brilliance of my God above

now lights the morning sky!

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature;
the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
