Dark your way is it? Dark as Egypt
Was dark to the Hebrews in Pharaoh’s time!
It is easy you say to look towards heaven,
When you walk where the mountain tops sublime,
See the first faint blue of the miracle dawn,
Feel the roselight kiss of the wonderful morn,
A-thrill with the glory of earth new born.
But when it is night and the night is dark,
And the storm birds screech and the wild winds wail,
And you sense the blackness of menacing clouds,
You shut your eyes and shiver and quail;
O, hug then your faith and clasp it tight,
Let it look thro' the darkness that fills the night,
For there is only one God, and God is Light.
