A Light will suddenly appear from heaven
like a bolt of lightning out of a clear sky
flashing and exploding in the world's midst
catching many off-guard.
A great Light shall burst in their midst
It will swirl like a tumbling laser sword
crisscrossing the earth like a searchlight.
For many, It will come to probe
Searching the recesses of life
Many will run away from it
But cannot escape; cannot hide.
Many will make a fig leaf,
To cover up their evil deeds
But the fig leaf will wither away
Leave them naked and exposed
Before the eyes of Heaven's Light.
The Light will clear smokescreens
Of the fog of lies, of the subterfuges
So that truth will emerge, and
Justice will triumph,
Every crime forgotten for passage of time
Every crime unsolved for lack of clue
Every crime inflicted on the weak
These shall be exposed by the Light
and avenged by its arm.
Those who said:
"We've committed the perfect crime.
Who shall find us out?"
Shall be identified, judged by the Light. 
The brilliance of Heaven's Light
shall blind the seers of this world.
Those who claimed to see,
They'll lose their sight
They'll stumble in the dark
They'll cry out to the Light.
The 'babes' they've decried
will take them by the hand
to lead them out, to the Light
Those whom they've considered
Shall be their sight, their load-stars.
For the shepherds of God's flock,
Who tend His sheep by day and night
To them the Light shall break forth
To lift up their gloom, the darkness.
They shall have a song as in the night
as when a holy assembly is kept
with joy, gladness of heart,
as when ones goes with a flute
to come into the mountain of the Lord,
to the Mighty One of Israel.
To God's oppressed and hurting people,
the Light will come as a deliverer--
To those who trust in God,
But walk bowed in darkness,
The Light will come to break the yoke
It'll will come as a Deliverer
To smash the teeth of the tyrant
To rush the power of its arm.
God's people, delivered from pain
released from sorrow
They'll leap for gladness of heart
and shout for deliverance.
“The Light will shine in the darkness,
and the darkness will comprehended it not.”
Scripture: Jn. 1:5; 1 Cor. 2; Is. 26:21, 29: 18, 30: 29, 42:16; 1 Cor. 4:5
 "Every murder, however secret, will be brought to light, and every murderer, however unsuspected previously, denounced and punished." (Pulpit Commentary Isaiah 26:10)
