On the dark days, Lord,
   when thick clouds shade my heart,
      shine your light upon my steps...

Be the light that burns within me,
   in the corners of confusion...

Be the light upon my path
   to show the way when I am lost...

Be a light to search me out
   when I'm huddled in the shadows...
   
Draw me out of my own darkness, Lord,
   into the light of peace...

Be the midday sun and share with me
  the warmth of your embrace...

Be the full moon's light in my night skies,
   to glow in all my dreams...

And be my light of wisdom
   when I'm foolish in my thoughts....

Be my light of hope, Lord,
   when sadness is my dwelling...

When I prefer the darkness or close my eyes in fear
   then shine your light upon me
      and give me strength of heart...

And if I choose the shadows - shine on me
   and draw me out from where I hide...

Brighten the darkness around me, Lord:
   illumine the darkness within me, 
   shine through the darkness that hides me,
   burn in the darkness that chills me, 
   shimmer in the darkness that dulls me,
   gleam in the darkness that shrouds me,
   sparkle in the darkness that clouds my hope...

Draw me out of my own darkness, Lord,
   into the light that never dims...

Amen.
