Morning Star Poetry

Light Shall Shine Out of Darkness!

Kristall Nacht


We know [positively] that we are of God, and the whole world [around us] is under the power of the evil one.

1 John 5:19
A poem in memory of the six million Jews murdered during the holocaust.

Our brothers fought, all hell was wrought,
through nights of broken glass.
As evil woke, the devil spoke,
our sisters killed en masse.

Let’s not forget, the current threat
of wickedness outright.
Redeem us now, through promised vow,
we long for Abba's light.

A mourner’s prayer while in despair,
don’t let our hearts grow dim.
Oh, Holy One, we are undone,
receive this heartfelt hymn.

“If people can be taught to hate, they can be taught to love!” – Corrie ten Boom

Let us never forget the horror of the Holocaust. We must learn from humanity's past history so that it never happens again. Most American kids in school today aren't being taught about the Holocaust. How is this possible?


One response to “Kristall Nacht”

  1. I really have no words for this one, Scotti…

    Great poem to be sure. I will never be able to comprehend how humans can commit this kind of atrocity. Evil incarnate…

    And, you are right, kids need to know about this. I don’t get it.
