from darkness into marvellous light from darkness into marvellous light from darkness into marvellous light

Lead kindly light,
amid the encircling 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 distance scene;
one step enough for me
