Day 1


Day 1

And the evening and the morning were the first day.

The deep was formless void, and dim-
A grim and dreadful state-
But hov’ring was the Spirit’s life
Upon the darkness great!

Then there within the aqueous,
By His command and might,
A word went forth that changed my soul:
He said, Let there be light.

That luminance was truth aglow
Within the void of I
Dispersing the iniquities
That held me in awry.

Until then I had little known
That God was dwelling here,
But light and truth were showing me
That He was drawing near.

Then He who deemed the light as good
Removed it from the dark-
And just to keep the message clear
Made their distinction stark!

He dubbed one Day, the other Night
(or Saintliness, and Sin),
And gave me freedom to decide
To lose or choose to win.

Genesis 1: 1-5

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Stay tuned for the 2nd day …
