In darkness

Clouds and thick darkness surround him (Psalm 97:2; NIV).

Golden splendour comes from the mountain of God. He is clothed in dazzling splendour (Job 37:22; NLT).

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

Doesn’t your fear of him overwhelm you? (Job 13:11; NLT).


First black,
Then white,
In dazzling, golden light,
I see you, Lord,
Grow ever brighter,

Till I hide,
And wait for you
To pass me by,
In love and awe
With eyes shut tight.

Then, overwhelmed,
I start to write,
As you leave me
In darkness,
Once again.
