When Light Dawned

Matthew 4:15-16; Isaiah 9:1-2

“Land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,”

Across weathered sands error erodes,
the circle of nations walked in darkness.
A long journey west of the Sea of Galilee;
where one would walk on crystal seas
to test the armor of weakened faith.

“By the way of the sea, Galilee of Gentiles:”

Stretched Tiberius, beyond the Jordan,
where ancients long awaited for His glory
to shine from city streets of great Galilee;
more than man would travel dusty roads
as people whispered tales testing truth.

“The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light.”

Once in ignorance, blindness and error;
following depths of detestable darkness.
Error clutched deep as veins travels body,
the veil lifted and truth and light arose.
The people stand in great awe in silence.

“And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.”

Dangerous death drowned like a worn ship
whose sail torn by torrent winds against
bleak skies. Then with great luster Light
made it’s way to the open heart’s of man’s
shouts, “The victory is His, His is the victory!”
