O LORD, why do you stand so far away? (Psalm 10:1; NLT).
We look for light, but all is darkness; for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows (Isaiah 59:9; NLT).
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life” (John 8:12; NLT).
You seem so very far away.
I seek you
Again and again
But I can’t see your light,
Or hear your voice,
Or reach your hand.
Please help me to follow your Son,
On this dark and lonely stretch
Of the path.
In his precious name,
