“Light the lamps within us, Lord of Light,
that we may see clearly
even when shadows fall across our lives.
Even as we know the darkness of night
only hides the day for a little while
may we know the truth that the Eternal Light
shines on behind the darkness of life’s difficulties.
We thank thee, Lord,
for the Light that shines forever
and pray that it may glow in us
and through us. Amen.”
- William A. Clough
