In the Distance, a Light

Light rises in the East

Dancing in all colors

At the splendor of the sun

The dawn of hope.

It is the morning hoped for

manifesting itself

In the horizon of a new day

Silencing pains and sorrows

Rejoice my soul, night is no more

Joy is the song hope brought.


Hope is the last to die

In the hearts of men.

It is a fire warming up

The expectation for tomorrow

Of a better day, with salvation

Promised long ago.

In these dark hours,

YAHSHUA shine on us

Your strength today

With enduring faith.


When at last dawn opens

Its eyes in the darkest of the night

It will bring to all a smile;

Men and nature of all kinds

Will arise in a song to God

With angels together

Rejoicing in adoration

To the forever Light of the dawn

Shinning His redemption

The hope of mankind.


Tears wiped away

The sorrows of yesterday

In the presence of the Savior

Joy expressed an atmosphere

Of peace, and gratitude

To the One Who gave

Men life forever more

In that beautiful place

Where our Savior outshines

The sun and the moon are needed no more.

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
