sunset 2

His words were very soft-spoken
They fell down gently from his lips
Their beginnings were full of much life
Yet to some who heard them the moment
Was missed

For the treasure most people desire
Would surely this day just fade away
Because they could not understand
What they heard so the roots of his
Word in their hearts did not stay

And yet again he would speak his
Living words with each begging for
A chance in a heart to live. Still,
No one took the time to listen and
Receive the life in his words which
He had to give

And he shed a tear for all the mothers
For all the fathers and children too,
Because he could see their life’s outcome
If today his words could not get through

As many sat down all around him some
Hungrily waited for something to eat
They felt the hunger in their spirits
grow, as his living words in their
Hearts they would now keep

And many this time would openly receive
That which their hearts could really hear
The substance of his word’s eternal food
Moving many to now shed heartfelt tears

As His living word touched them deep inside
Freeing their minds from their human fears
They openly took a chance on his living word
Which today their hearts now would hold dear

And many turned away from their sins that day
Accepting the word of Christ the eternal king
Filling their spirits with His tranquil peace
Which gives their hearts a daily song to sing.

John 1, Verses 1-5
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was
with God, and the Word was God. He was with God
in the beginning. Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was made that has
been made. In him was life, and that life was
the light of all mankind. The light shines in
the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
