Lead, Kindly Light


September 21, 2013,
Our Angel Son was born
at 20 weeks gestation.

While there are no words for the crushing grief we feel.
Our hearts are comforted
because we know
families are ETERNAL!
and we will have our baby boy back someday.

“In His Constant Care” Simon Dewy

Lead, Kindly Light
Lead, Kindly Light, amid th’encicrling gloom;
Lead thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home;
Lead thou me on!
Keep thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene-one step enough for me

I was not ever thus, nor pray’d that thou
shouldst lead me on.
I loved to choose and see my path; but now,
Lead thou me on!
I loved the garish day, and spite of fears,
Pride ruled my will.  Remember not past years.

So long thy pow’r hath blessed me, sure it still
Will lead me on
O’er moor and fen, o’er crag and torrent, till
The night is gone.
And with the morn those angel faces smile,
Which I have loved long since, and lost a while!
