Though the darkness of sin may grow,
and the weight of the world bears down.
A brilliant light will always show,
and lift me from the ground.
Though I may stumble and fall,
on the path to waking light.
The lord will pull me from my crawl,
and guide me through the night.
Though I may give way to desire,
and sin against his name.
He will fight off the raging fire,
and love me all the same.
Though salvation is never free,
and there is always a cross to bear.
Jesus holds it with me,
through grace, love, and care.
Though some may wish me pain,
and friends fade with time.
Forever he shall remain,
his side standing by mine.
Though one day my days will cease,
and my soul ascends to his throne.
In his kingdom I’ll be at peace,
by his side I’ll be at home.
