LIGHT ENOUGH

Lord,
  does it honor You
  when I take
  even one small step
    not knowing where
      I go, except
    that I am following You?

I ask no
  blazing path
  of miracles
To lead me on.

In the dark,
  knowing You
    are both ahead
    and close behind
Is light enough
  for me.

Nancy Spiegelberg

Thou has beset me behind and before,
and laid thine hand upon me. 
Psalm 139:5

LIGHT ENOUGH

Lord,
  does it honor You
  when I take
  even one small step
    not knowing where
      I go, except
    that I am following You?

I ask no
  blazing path
  of miracles To lead me on.

In the dark,
  knowing You
    are both ahead
    and close behind
Is light enough
  for me.
