#adventbookclub Day 23: O Morning Star

O Morning Star,

You are the first hint

Of a new light.

You throw into sharp relief

The deep glory of darkness,

And dazzle the people

Who have dwelt in it so long.

Come, shine through the darkness

Of grace-filled, pain-pierced lives

To bring hope to those who wait.
