You are our darkness

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

God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

How frail is humanity! How short is life, how full of trouble! (Job 14:1; NLT).

In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world (John 16:33; NIV).


Lord God,

You are our darkness,
And our light;

Our drought,
And our rain;

Our famine,
And our harvest;

Our desert,
And our shelter;

Our ocean,
And our harbour;

Our wandering,
And our resting-place;

Our frailty,
And our pilgrimage;

Our deepest longing,
And our journey’s end.
