Holy

It is dark, I cannot see.

—Wait a bit, there will be

light.

I  don’t see You, but I’ll trust.

—I made your eyes, they will adjust;

I gave you sight.

So much I see, that should not be.

Be still and leave this all to Me;

it will be right.

 I fear most to see inside of me.

Fear not. Even there I’ll be

to drive away your night.

No darkness is too great for Me.

This I know. It sets me free.

Toward Your light my soul

takes flight.

  1. What wonder you’ve wrought with these words and the image you shared. My favorite lines are ones that I need to adopt as a daily prayer (especially now).
    “So much I see, that should not be.
    —Be still and leave this all to Me;
    it will be right.”

    • Thank you, Ramona – there’s a heavy truth in that first line, but I thought of Psalm 46:10 (“Be still..”)
      and know that I have to keep trusting & believing. How lovely to think of it as a prayer!

  2. Wow! What a great poem for the lenten season, which invites reflection “Even there I’ll be to drive away your night…” filled with hope and encouragement, lovely!
    BTW I am already picturing you at church tomorrow in your green dress!

    • I hadn’t even thought of this as a Lenten poem, even though this is clearly the season of Lent. So interesting… yes, dress & shamrock scarf (& St. Patrick post!) are all good to go! 😊
