I’ve stood in shadows and in light,And this much I can say,
Though shadow can be alluring,
Light is the only way.
I lived in shadow for a while
But, like the moth, I knew
The Light was filled with what I need,
And closer still I drew.
Now I choose to live in The Light,
I’ve left the dark behind,
Though now and then I find it still
Lingers within my mind.
Yet, in those moments when it calls,
The Light shines brighter still.
The siren song of temptation
No longer holds a thrill.
You make my lamp bright. The Lord my God lights my darkness.
