Stormy Summer Nights

Summer nights that are muggy,
With a hint of breeze.
Most nights it's not long
Before the pale streaks you see.
Rumblings off in the distance
Come closer with each flash.

A wondrous display of
cosmic creation
Right above your head.
Oh, what a beautiful sight,
Though as a child,
I would hide in my bed.
Trembling from the noise and light,
And perspiring as I hid.

Stormy summer nights
Are so magical to me,
God created quite a show.
I am always watching and listening,
And sometimes our lights will go.
Bring out the candles,
And place them around,
All lit just in case
The manmade light should go away
We'd have soft light in it's place.

Seldom does that happen,
But always stay prepared.
For some, if the storm has passed
Total darkness makes them scared.
It's how it will be
If you're soul's not ready to meet
The Creator when time comes
Total darkness through eternity.

There will be a light,
But you will not see,
But feel it's eternal flame.
Because of course in hell you'll be,
No one else to blame.
Won't go away like a stormy night,
That eases in and out.
It will be there for all time,
And that's what sin's about.

So won't you come and
Open your heart,
And let sin take flight?
All you really have to do is
Be like a stormy summer night.
Come into God's presence
And let yourself be known,
And in His Brightest Light,
Let all your sin's be gone!

ŠShirley Barr

Scripture: Psalms 148 1~4

Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye
the Lord from the heavens:
Praise him in the heights.
Praise ye him, all his angels:
Praise ye him, all his hosts.

Praise ye him, sun and moon:
Praise him, all ye stars of light.
Praise him, ye heavens of
heavens, and ye waters that
be above the heavens.
