The Heavens Declare

The sun at noon was dressed in black that day,
Each ray of light was quenched by God’s own tears,
The sight of sin, His eyes could not endure,
The mystery of God’s plan was underway.

What caused the universe such disarray?
A Father mourning His beloved Son?
God’s poetry was hidden in plain sight,
The sun at noon was dressed in black that day.

As though the sky itself was in dismay,
A blood moon rose, a bloodied corpse set down,
While Innocence took suffering in my stead,
The mystery of God’s plan was underway. 

The sun at noon was dressed in black that day,
An unknown torment pierced my Savior’s soul,
The mystery of God’s grace was underway.

    That is SO very powerful and humbling. Every word counts. Thank you – Sylvia

  2. Greetings. It’s good to think on just how incredible our salvation is. It’s been a prayer as of late; for a deeper revelation of the enormous price that Jesus paid to redeem us. This poem is a great reflection of this.

    Have a blessed day in Jesus.


  3. Love the line “God’s poetry was hidden in plain sight”. We are too often unaware or “blind” to God’s glory when it is all around us.

    Another great poem. Careful…you might end up being prolific! 😉

  4. It is good to reflect upon Calvary and the wonderful love of Jesus, especially at this time of the year. Thank you for sharing.



  5. Just stopping by to say “Hello”, God bless ya.

  6. Praise for one so gifted in stringing words together…that was one powerful and humbling piece. Thank you. A joyful day of resurrection.

  7. Wow. This is beautiful.
