THE LIGHT STILL SHINES

Once this land was full of places
where people knelt to pray
but now the Church is dying
congregations fall away

The world is hurt and empty
and everywhere we see
these little tumbled buildings
where once we used to be

but the candle still is burning
its light not fully past
and we’ll keep the Christ-light glowing
‘til the Lord returns at last.

No one comes

No one comes
