             Lead Kindly Light
                         by Cardinal Newman

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 distant scene--one step 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!
I loved the garish day, and, spite of
fears,
Pride ruled my will: remember not past
years.

So long Thy power hath blessed me, sure it
still
Will lead me on,
O'er moor and fen, o'er crag and torrent,
till
The night is gone;
And with the morn those angel faces smile
Which I have loved long since, and lost
awhile.
