In the midst of this old darkness the past is slipping away
I await the dawn, and its new mercies each day
But in this night I find myself seeking,
following but one star in the sky,
A light for my way, a light shining for all the world
This Star keeps leading me on a Pilgrim’s Journey,
and as long I follow I am ok,
for when I stray a chill bruns through me,
the Voice of the Star speaks to me.
A voice of correction I have learned not to ignore
I’ve found the Star loves me even enough to teach me.
I don’t know what I will see on the way or what I will face with each coming day.
but the Star keeps on guiding and I have learned by abiding,
to just keep on plodding this straight narrow way.
I don’t know where the Star will lead you,
nor do you know where it will lead me
But this I know, I must keep following that Star
and I would welcome your company…
