"In this hour of darkness"

April 24, 2019

Their blood adorns
The risen Lord
Spilled from hearts of love
They gathered there
On earth
As it is above
In this hour of darkness
The moon occludes the sun
Tears like rain
Fall from souls
Who look for the kingdom
How long
Must time draw on
Without your face to look upon?
We see the shadows
Drawn like swords
The hour itself marches towards
What council for the sorrowful?
My Lord
Have you forsaken us?
In great pain
We wait
We wait
From the ground
The answer comes
Sprung from the blood
Of martyrdom
In the midst of darkest night
Most radiant dawn
