Three days of darkness overwhelmed the sky,
And fear invaded us all.
Three days of nighttime smothered this whole world;
Unleashed the wrath of the fall.
All that existed was the color black;
The only emotion was fright.
Every soul felt a strong pull downward
There, in the absence of light.
No comfort or joy expelled the horror
But vanished along with the sun.
There was no sign or human prediction
As to when relief would come.
Ears were as deaf as eyes were blind;
Snatched up words were gone.
None could find or imagine solace;
We did not expect the dawn.
Terror and dread were thoroughly flooding
Even the purest of hearts.
Hopeful dreams were quickly snuffed out;
Memories torn apart.
But three days later, the horizon gleamed
A glorious, unknown light.
The sight was unforgettable:
The resurrected Christ.
Vacant darkness of the previous days
Was vanquished forever, gone.
Unfathomable, arose the Son,
Our never-ending dawn.
- The heavenly light of Christ: bursting forth, glorious, overcoming darkness, eternal.
