Sometimes fear uncoils its icy tentacles And claws deep into my psyche. Like a moonless splinter of the night sky stark terror hounds my soul. In such faith-shattering moments, bequeath Your light upon me Lord. Illumine the encircling darkness and steer me to the haven of your shores. Holy Spirit lift up my faltering faith let your mercy rekindle my belief Soothe my affrighted spirit, sweet Lord Steep it in the chalice of your Love.
