Clouds and thick darkness surround him (Psalm 97:2; NIV).

Darkness is my closest friend (Psalm 88:18; NLT).

If you are walking in darkness, without a ray of light, trust in the LORD and rely on your God (Isaiah 50:10; NLT).

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7; NIV).

The darkness
That surrounds you
Is my closest friend –

For just as a seed
Grows in the darkness
Of the earth,

So I, too, grow
During the long nights
Of my soul,

As I wait patiently
In the fertile darkness
That surrounds you.
