Candle in a dark place

         Attend to this
                  as to a lamp shining in a dark place,
         until the day dawns
                  and the morning star rises in your hearts.

                                             —1 Peter 1.19

In a house at midnight
even moonlight through the window
can light your way.

By the light of a faint star
slaves found their way
to freedom.

Even in thickest night
my Presence quietly shines,
not a searchlight, but enough.

Sit with me ’till the light
fills you and you yourself
are a candle in a dark place.
