He Lightens the Darkness

The Lord will lighten my darkness.

2 SAMUEL 22:29


Upon whom doth not His light arise?

JOB 25:3


HOPE, then, though woes be doubled,

Hope, and be undismayed;

Let not thy heart be troubled,

Nor let it be afraid.

This prison where thou art,

Thy God will break it soon,

And flood with light thy heart

In His own blessed noon.

PAUL GERHARDT


A CHRISTIAN may for many days together see neither sun nor star, neither light in God's coun­tenance, nor light in his own heart, though even at that time God darts some beams through those clouds upon the soul; the soul again by a spirit of faith sees some light through those thickest clouds, enough to keep it from utter despair, though not to settle it in peace. In this dark condition, if they do as St. Paul and his company did, cast an anchor even in the dark night of temptation, and pray still for day, God will appear, and all shall clear up, we shall see light with­out and light within; the day-star will arise in their hearts.
