BIRTHRIGHT

Children of God we must
cherish our divine potential
godliness depends on us
enlightened, obedience to
His commands, all things
in remembrance, midst shadows
a sure light, sextant to eye
in darkness, scriptures of stars
to guide, written witness of His love
kneeling before the firmament
our silent voice, humble beholden
is heard, hand to lead in stillness
never to be lost, a birthright sum
our world long conquered, on the cross
fear not then, the longest night
our dawn of day will come.
