Dawn

It comes dancing in the East

Rejoicing with the sun

Stretching from one end to the other

As God stretches His arms to the world


Warmness fills the earth

With His mercy and love

Being renewed day after day

Great is His faithfulness


As the sun runs its course

Dawn disappears in the light

Of a new day and hope

Embraces the world with peace


Sorrows left behind

In the arms of yesterday, for

Weeping might last a night

But joy will come in next day


The sun fades away in the West

Leaving behind traces of beauty

Bringing in the dark of the night

Silencing the anxiety of the world


Creatures go on hiding

In their secure home

Until dawn announces

A new day with shine of colors


In the East, fading darkness

From their eyes and brightening

Their hope with a new today

Of God’s faithfulness.

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.
