Romans 5:5

And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given to us.

Luke 11:33

No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.

And so when our souls
Are redeemed, justified, sanctified and captivated
By the gracious,sacrificial love of Jesus Christ
So much so that His all expansive love,
Salvations hope and glory
Is shed abroad in our hearts
Becoming a prism of resplendent light,
A reflective fire exquisitely displayed
On a costly, elaborate, royal candle stick of praise
Chosen to be displayed in a ever darkening world of sin
Chosen to be displayed in the palace of a Heavenly King
By our eternal father, Light of the World
Who is constantly shedding abroad
Such a costly divine, beautiful, royal array of light
Midst an ever blackening night
So all will run to find the source of that eternal light
Creator of earth, and sky, and sun,
The King of Kings and Lord of Lords
Who shines ever so brightly
within the hearts and souls of the redeemed
Beckoning all to come and see
That the Light of the World
Is found when kneeling at the foot of the cross
Knowing that it was our sins that nailed him to the tree
Knowing that salvation is His free
Yet costly gift for all of humanity,
Knowing that the passion of His heart is to
Redemptively pursue, and rescue all who are lost
Inviting all to Christ’s lavish banquet hall
Filled and over flowing with His lavish redeeming grace
Filled and over flowing with His light filled
Bouquet of salvations exquisite gifts
For all His royal, blood bought
Accepted in the beloved daughters and sons!
