Morning Star Poetry

Light Shall Shine Out of Darkness!

The Heavens Declare

And when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice.

Mark 15:33-34

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.

  1. 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.


  2. 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! 😉

  3. Thank you all for your comments! I hope to make my blog rounds sometime later today as well as post a new poem. I appreciate your words of encouragement.
    Have a blessed day. 🙂
    He is Risen!
