Let there be light, God's first command,
Behold the glory of dawn's first light,
As light of life spreads 'cross the land,
Retreating forces of the night.

Rose and crimson from forth the east,
In splendored hues, dark sky ignite,
Cascading over man and beast,
Comes great white sea; comes dawn's first light.

As waters part; light parts the mist,
Spreading forth from crest to crest,
Each hill and valley soon submissed,
As world from darkness, light does wrest.

Upon us all does shine the light,
Retreating forces from the night.

Night's pallid hush ascends with gentle Grace;
Nocturnal fauna nestles back in ground.
Precursive solar tendrils peer around
Through tatted eyelets in morn's tree-top lace.

Faint blushing tiers of pink and crimson hue
Unfold soft wisps of streaming cirrus cloud.
The meadow's haze of gossamer a shroud
As crystal sheaths submit to glist'ning dew

And cautious sunbeams flicker on the rise.
Clenched petals stretch to welcome dawning's rays;
A valiant beacon bursts forth in full blaze.
The Morning Star now masked by azure skies,

'Til breath of life, that brief eternity
God's sacred Realm embraces only me.

I know you've read this, Mike - But I couldn't think of any more appropriate response...
