Day or Darkness

"Abraham begat Isaac. The sons of Isaac; Esau and Israel" (1 Chronicles 1:34).  "Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning" (Psalm 110:3).  "The turning away of the simple shall slay them… But whoso hearkeneth unto Me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil" (Proverbs 1:32,33).  "Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness" (1 Thessalonians 5:5). 

There is a great divide between
The children of the day and night,
For Christ our Lord will intervene
Between the darkness and the light. 

The line which came from Abraham
Now illustrates this very well. 
The light of Christ, the great I Am,
Has shined with grace from Israel. 

This is the day of saving power,
Though many choose to turn away. 
May we be willing in this hour
To shine as children of the day. 

O Lord, there is no neutral ground
Between the day or darkness now.
So may we by Your grace be found
To shine with light that You endow.
