lighten the darkness
“O let us never forget;
that the wonderful things
contained in the divine law
can neither be discovered
nor relished by the 'natural man,'
whose powers of perception and enjoyment
are limited in their range
to the objects of time and sense.
It is the divine Spirit alone
who can lighten the darkness of our sinful state,
and who can enable us to perceive the glory,
the harmony, and moral loveliness
which everywhere shine forth
in the pages of revealed truth.”
- John Morison
