Each and every one of us has had to face many burdens. Sometimes I feel as if I am alone in the dark trying to find my way around. The past few days have brought with them several struggles that I could never solve. Each day seemed to get darker and darker. Christ is the LIGHT and HE shines even when the whole world is black around us. HE is the ONLY HOPE. Sometimes when I feel the worst I realize all the more that I can only cling to HIS PROMISES because the world can not solve its own problems.

The sun has vanished with its light.

The moon is safely hiding out of sight.

The stars, afraid, refuse to twinkle bright..

I stand here in the cold and dreadful night.

I cannot see the left road or the right.

I do not know

Which way to go.

I need You -

Only You.

My heart and mind are so afraid

Of each decision that must be made.

I wish the daylight had longer stayed,

So I could see the options to be weighed.

If only I had stopped and prayed!

I do not know

Which way to go.

I need You -

Only You.

I know I can't continue on

Once the light has swiftly gone.

I am alone. I need someone.

My burden seems to weigh a ton.

I fear the darkened night has won.

I do not know

Which way to go.

I need You -

Only You.

Then, standing right in front of me

Upon the hill, I see the tree

Where once, in Your Humility,

You died for all - including me,

And then You rose, triumphantly!

So now I know

Which way to go.

Youare the LIGHT -

And You're my SIGHT!
