Darkness and Light

God of both darkness and light

do we seek and find

the inner strength of your comfort

more often, more clearly

in the dark times of our lives

than when all is going well

and we feel more self-sufficient,

basking in the sunshine?

Help us never to forget

that you always travel with us

and that our task

here in your kingdom on earth

is to share your light and your love

with those around us,

not ‘hide it under a bushel’

just for our own needs

when times are hard.
