Friday slowdown

After all Mary had been through when she became a widow, and with everything happening in her world, I think she might have prayed this to our Father . . .

In the beginning
Into the darkness
The Spirit's moving upon the waters
You spoke the words:
"LET THERE BE LIGHT!"
Out of the chaos
Came the promise
The universe rose and applauded
When You commanded
The new born sun to rise

You are the Day Spring
You are the Morning Star
Creation's splendor speaks of who You are
You are Salvation
You are the Joy of the Earth
Restoration comes
Hope of the broken world

Into my weakness
Into my darkness
Your Spirit's moving upon my heart and
You speak the words: "LET THERE BE LIGHT!"
Into my chaos
Comes Your promise
The new is rising the old has passed on
You are reviving and making all things right

You are the Day Spring
You are the Morning Star
Creation's splendor speaks of who You are
You are Salvation
You are the Joy of the Earth
Restoration comes
Hope of the broken world
