OUT OF THE DARKNESS, A STAR, by L. PAUL ROBERTS
First Line: An eye for an eye,' was the law
Last Line: Felt his own kinship with god.
"An eye for an eye" was the Law;
A tooth took a tooth for its pay.
Then, out of the darkness, a Star
To show us a new, better way.
Out of the darkness, a Star.
Bringing new light from above;
Pointing the pathway to Peace;
Lighting the highway to Love.
The wiser ones followed the Star;
Nor tried to persuade or inspire.
And others, who watched from afar,
Drew deep-rooted feet from the mire.
Out of the darkness, a Star,
And Man raised his eyes from the sod;
Saw things anew as they are,
Felt his own kinship with God.
