Lead Kindly Light - Poem by Aftab Alam

Lead kindly light

This is a thorny road
My destination is far
My boat, within the mist
Banks far unseen
Lord: Lead kindly light
Show me the straight path

How long I have to walk?
Dawn seems to me far
Teach me, O My Lord
How to get rid of darkness?
Lord: Lead kindly light
Show me the straight path

My winged thought, fly
Try and try to be high
I am not disappointed
I am not hopeless
I don’t want to give up
Lord: Lead kindly light
Show me the straight path

I am calling you
O my dear brethren
In this ocean of terror
An urn of peace I keep
Lord: Lead kindly light
Show me the straight path

    If Lord wills, our path will be lighted well so that we don't have to grope in darkness! Cardinal Newman is still remembered for his famous poem 'Lead Kindly Light'! A lovely write! ! (Report) Reply
