Dawn’s Early Light--By Lisa DeVinney--United States

Dawn’s Early Light

The shadows of the night are fading fast;
The light of a new dawn is stealing in.
The earth will not turn back upon the past;
But forward to a new day it will spin.

The tears of sorrow’s night will fall away,
Brushed gently by God’s tender, healing hand;
As joy is ushered in with this new day
Which dawns upon the soul, at His command.

The long, cold night of weeping is behind.
A day bathed in the Son now lies before.
And once again, His promises remind
Of blessings that the Father has in store.
