Shared darkness

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

Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me (Psalm 23:4; NLT).

Your hand will guide me (Psalm 139:10; NLT).

Darkness and light are the same to you (Psalm 139:12; NLT).

I form the light and create darkness (Isaiah 45:7; NLT).


You are surrounded by thick darkness,
As am I,
So I live with you in darkness
Every day.

Though I can’t see your face
I’m not afraid,
For you are close beside me
All the time.

And though I cannot see
The way ahead,
I know your hand
Will guide me home at last,

For light and dark
Are just the same to you,
The great, transcendent God
Who makes them both.
