We cannot share your light

 

Lord,

We cannot share your light
Without your darkness.

We cannot share your peace
Without your pain. 

We cannot share your hope 
Without your sorrow.

We cannot share your way
Without your shame. 

We cannot share your truth 
Without your weeping.

We cannot share your faith
Without your loss. 

We cannot share your joy 
Without your anguish.

We cannot share your love 
Without your cross.
