"The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the LORD,
make straight in the desert a highway for our God."
Isaiah 40:3


He Came to the Dark Side

From infinity of uncreated light
The angels watched Him leave,
Still downward through the galaxies
Another life to live.
He laid aside His glory
The glory of His crown,
He left behind His throne
He wanted to come down.
Descending from the height
His radiance depleted,
Stepping from infinity
For death to be defeated.
He knew of His destination
A speck of tiny land
Only He could enter this destruction
Planned by created man.
He landed on the dark side
for He arrived at night,
To a dismal stable
Where darkness exploded into glory
With such angelic light.
To the dark He came
With a heart so full of grace,
Then His radiance exposed every sin,
Of wanting power and gold
But rejecting all of Him.
He knew they would hunt Him
Down within their night,
To destroy His deep compassion
Determined to extinguish light.
But still He chose to come only with love
To bring heaven to the hearts that fight
And now He can take cleansed hearts back into glory,
For He broke the bars of night.
