You Shine!


You Shine!

All who call

on the Name of the Lord

shall be saved,

shall be renamed

the light of the world.

Whether dressed in ballgown

and victory roll crown,

or dressed in drab and paperbag--

You shine!

Whether you are feeling bad,

happy, glad, or sad--

You shine!

Whether you have bags under your eyes

from sleepless nights,

or years of laughter has left you with wrinkle lines,

or puffy eyes from grief and prayers and cries--

Your eyes shine the light of Christ!

Draw near, now wise and dear woman, and hear.

Hear Him whisper, "You are loved. You are kind. You are mine.

You shine!"

At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.

Daniel 12:1-3
