From the recording My Savior, My Lord, My King

One thing about darkness is, with just a simple spark, the way can be lighted, even if just for a step or two, if we are willing to trust in the light itself and trust that the path it will illuminate for us, just one bit at a time, is one that will lead us to growth, strength, and eventually perfection. That is the sentiment of "Lead, Kindly Light," that when trials come, the pain of death separates us from loved ones, or it is just plain dark, there will come a brighter time, even a gloriously happy and brighter time, filled with knowledge, reunions, and strength earned and given through struggle.
This piano solo was adapted from its original vocal/piano improvisation (it was also the basis for combining this with two other songs about His light, which will be released shortly).  Follow that kindly Light!


Lead, kindly light, amid th'encircling gloom,
Lead thou me on,
The night is dark, and I am far from home.
Lead, thou, me on.
Keep, thou, my feet; I do not ask to see the distant scene;
One step, enough, for me.
I was not ever thus, nor prayed that thou
Shouldst lead me on,
I loved to see and choose my path, but now
Lead, thou, me on.
I loved the garish day, and spite of fears, pride ruled my will.
Remember not past years.
So long Thy pow'r hast blest me, Sure it still
Will lead me on,
O'er moor and fen, O'er crag and torrent till
The night is gone.
And with the morn, those angel faces smile
Which I have loved long since
But lost awhile.
Lead, kindly light, lead thou me on,
Lead, kindly light, lead thou me on.
Lead, thou, me on.
Lead, thou, me on.
