‘Lead Kindly Light’ is a poem that I have found to be important in my life, especially at the time when I really did not know what God wanted me to do. This will always be my prayer – to follow the light. Copyright 2008 by James Collignon.
Lead, Kindly Light
(John Henry Newman)
Music by James Collignon
Light, amid the encircling gloom,
Lead thou me on;
The night is dark, and I am far from home,
Lead thou me on
Keep thou my feet; do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me
I was not ever thus, nor prayed that thou
Should’st lead me on;
I loved to choose and see 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 power hath blast 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, and lost a while
