'Lead Kindly Light'
Caught in the clutch of darkness, I quail
Seeing it shrouding my spirits, I wail
Assailed by afflictions severe
My life is now devoid of all cheer
Oh Light! Penetrate through this darkness
Let your beams cut through this dankness
Till every murky corner is warm and aglow
And I am steadied by that glow
Across the lengthening stretch of my loneliness
I see only frightening shadows of grayness
So come down to me as a prop
As through this alley, staggering I grope
Hold my hand and lead me to sunshine
With Thy brilliance, my life entwine
Set my mind free from the grip of fear
Fill it with thoughts, resurging and pure
So shall I go on my journey
With abiding Hope as company
And enough grace to make each day
Better than the ones gone their way!
