Beautiful Death

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. (Psalm 116:15)

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.  (Isa. 61:3)

Precious in the sight of God
the death of His saint.
His candle
in its last guttering
an exsplosion of light
a song
a word
a sword of laser light
thick darkness
the searing sealing--
a saint
who mourned
for those things done
in Zion.
