may I never walk alone
Through light and shadow – I am led. I follow. Through the ins and outs, the ups and downs of these days,
when my heart is failing, when my spirit rejoices, when I can barely put one foot in front of the other: still you beckon me on…
When I stumble you support me, when I can go no further you carry me, through light and shadow, in death’s dark vale and on the mountain peaks: you lead me.
Through tangled webs, on rocky ground, on smoother paths, through light and shadow: you lead me. I follow – may I never walk alone…Amen.
