The dark is not dark
for I am with you.
Be not afraid of the unknown.
I am there to guide you.
I turn on each light
as you step out to follow,
illuminating the way
one moment at a time.
You may rest briefly,
but turning back is surely grief
when I would lead you forward.
Pure trust is what I desire from you.
Then doubt's companion, fear,
is driven away,
making all things light for you
that you may see clearly
and not stumble.
I will bring the blind by a way they did not know;
I will lead them in paths they have not known.
I will make darkness light before them, And crooked places
straight. These things I will do for them, And not forsake them.
