‘I am the Light of the world’ –
when the blinds on your vision are furled
that Light can enlighten perception and puzzles –
and points to its source in the glory that dazzles –
the glory of God in his power and his purity,
his wisdom and love that perceives all with clarity.
But some want to keep blinds opaque all unfurled –
mistakenly think that the Light of the world
will trick them, make miserable, jollity hurled
far away – but whoever lets in this true Light
progresses with joy through this troublesome night.
