Light In A Dark Place
By Tom D Blakely
Surely goodness and mercy were hidden from sight
as I grew up in darkness as black as the night.
I was lost and alone in a place with no light;
I was blind and did not know, how I could put things right.
But the Lord in His mercy then helped me to see
that all light comes from Jesus; not from within me.
At the cross the Lord showed me Christ died for my sin;
There I found the way to life and was forgiven.
‘I am the light of the world.
He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness,
but have the light of life.’
