For darkness creeping in

If things are meant to be
Why aren’t they meant for we
If its on Your time
Why are You wasting our climb

If Beauty is now effacing
Why are the Gods forward pacing
If we are to be with One
Why is it all undone

If night’s luminous and clear
Why isn’t Beauty ever near
If shadows befall the heart
Why did He ever start

For this tormented play
Makes for a torrent stay
For darkness creeping in
Makes for everlasting sin

When the Word shines true
Only then will we be due
When the Gospel is read a blaze
Only then will He fulfill our days
