Though nothing looks the brighter;
              My path is still the same,

 

Though nothing looks the brighter;
              My path is still the same,
My God, I want to thank You
              And praise Your holy name.

Dark clouds are all around me;
              No sign of light is here,
But in my heart I cherish
              The thought that You are near.

I don’t know if You’ll answer
              And give me all I ask,
But still I know You love me
              And in Your love I bask.

I cast myself upon You;
              I turn to You my face,
And so am I illumined
              In e’en the darkest place.

I cannot help but trust You,
              Though darkness still remains;
Your light is on the inside
              And fills my heart and reins.
