Dayspring. An interesting word, don’t you think? Have you ever considered it?
I like it. It’s poetic and gentle ~ yet, strong and full of power.
I recently became curious about this word, so I looked it up in the dictionary.
Here is what I found:
But “Archaic”? Hmmmm. I suppose that the terminology is archaic, but…
The Dayspring – the One Who is the Hope of the earth — He’s timeless.
Brings new life to the familiar carol lyrics: “…Tis the dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.”
The Dayspring. The Dawn of redeeming grace.
Newborn babe, yet altogether Lord. Wow.
Surely not archaic in power. Redeeming grace – such power, such beauty.
The beginning…the dawn…of grace. The Dayspring.
Jesus. Gentle enough to be a newborn baby, and powerful enough to be Lord.
