Be Our Light

Day is gone, and night is here

Bringing with it its tendrils of ice

On everyone, it holds a grip of fear

As if sucking out all that is nice.

The darkness, throbbing, pulsing, flowing

Suffocating, crushing down,

Oh, how I wish the sun was glowing,

With rays like its golden crown!

Lord, be the light onto our path

And the lamp onto our feet.

Hold back the nighttime's darkest wrath,

And bring to us Your grace, so sweet.

Thank you, Lord, the (Son/sun) has risen!

Freeing us from the devil's prison!
