O Lord, You are my Light and Salvation!
Some days are sunny, bright,
Easy to love;
Some days are dark, cold,
Dreary to the spirit;
Some days are stormy and wild,
Disorienting, even fearsome;
But always, above the storm clouds,
The dreary fog, the depressing haze,
Shines the faithful sun,
Clear and bright, warm, unchanging.
You, my Lord, are that sun to me.
Always, unchanging, is Your Heart of Love and Kindness.
Never need I fear the clouds the world brings
For You, my Comforter, are still there.
These things, too, will pass, dissolve, move away,
But never You, even for a moment,
O Faithful One.
So I look past the storm clouds,
Knowing You are there.
I place my faith, my trust,
In You, O ever-present, unchanging Love,
And know that even when You are hard to see,
Even when You are hard to feel,
Your Sacred Heart ever pours out Your rays of Love
Even with the thorns, even with the Cross.
Your constant Love is there, still, always.
Your Love endures forever
Long after the clouds move away.
