I knew the light could never fail
When, finally, morning came.
Despite the darkness I had sought,
Christ found me, in my shame.

There in the midst of sin, I'd hid,
The shadow as my shield,
But found myself defenseless then,
My trembling form revealed.

Rays struck my eyes, which I at once
Feared they must blinded be,
Yet realized after that brief pain
That finally they did see.

At first I saw only my wrongs,
Each judgement which I failed,
But then grace overwhelmed the sight
And, like the light, prevailed.


A/N: This is the first time I've written in almost six months. It's strange - last year I also didn't start writing again until it was almost January. Maybe now I'll start writing frequently again.
