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!
