The darkness is a covering

to hide the questions that I bring.

God bless me even in the night

to bring my love into the light. 

The darkness is where fears may hide,

but help me, God, to look inside.

Give me the courage, Love, to face

my demons with your saving grace.

The darkness is a mystery,

the way that is unclear to me.

Yet God, you lead me by the hand

to journey toward a promised land.

The darkness is a place of rest,

where I may sleep and be your guest

until the rising of the sun.

I rest in you, O Loving One. Amen.
