For thou art my lamp o Lord
And the Lord will lighten my darkness.
2 Samuel 29
I was in the dark night of my soul
© Helen Catherine Cramer
Nothing could ease my pain
Which had come swiftly, unexpectedly
And left me desolate.
I could find no escape
So deep was my despair
No mortal hand could aid me
Or gentle word soothe my yearning.
And in my longing
I cried to You, my lord
Who heard my prayer and touched me
And made me whole
For Thou art my light O Lord
And You lead me from this darkness.
