Lead Kindly Light - John Henry Newman - A Prayer for Trust and Surrender

This beautiful hymn was written by Cardinal John Henry Newman who wrote these words during his time of sickness and bound for three weeks in Italy on his way back to England his home land. Longing to be at home in times of uncertainties and not knowing where the paths lead us at times that we have to journey through. Our feeling of being 'got-stuck' in these kind of situations and experience hopelessness and powerlessness that drowns us in our own fear and lack of trust. But in these times of darkness there rises a prayer of hope and assurance like John Henry Newman pours out his heart and soul in this beautiful prayer. Today we pray it as a beautiful hymn, and this hymn can become our prayer too in these times of pandemic and reassure us by the guiding hand of God especially during these times that test our faith and trust in God.

Lead, kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom, Lead me Thou 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 is enough for me. I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou shouldst lead me on; I loved to choose and see my path, but now lead Thou me on.
