Dawn’s Early Light

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

The shadows of the night are fading fast;
The light of a new dawn is stealing in.
The earth will not turn back upon the past;
But forward, to the new day it will spin.
The tears of sorrow’s night will fall away,
Brushed gently by God’s tender, healing hand;
As joy is ushered in with this new day
Which dawns upon the soul, at His command.
The long, cold night of weeping is behind.
A day bathed in the Son now lies before.
And once again, His promises remind
Of blessings that the Father has in store.
“Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.”
Psalm 30:5b NKJV
