OUT OF THE DARKNESS INTO THE LIGHT


WAY BACK IN 1987, I awoke one Sunday Morning from a dream...Sunshine was streaming in two long windows.  Bill was saying, "we should always pray here-where the sun shines in."  I was so sleepy but I had to get up and write down the words as they came to to me.  I had wanted to add music to the verse but have not.  I share it now with you:
                      Out of the Darkess
                                by Kerrie O'Hearn Marquart 8/30/87

Out of the Darkness, into the light
Jesus lead me to prayer.
When darkness falls and I start to despair,
Light the lamp and lead me to prayer.
When I am weary and filled with fear,
You light the lamp and show that you care.

Out of the darkness, into the light
Let all my paths lead to thee.
No matter what trouble or sorrow I see,
I shall never give up, the lamp waits for me.
The warm glow of Jesus is beckoning to me,
"Come out of the darkness and follow me."

Kerrie, this is just absolutely wonderful. I felt a sense of peace and quiet come into my heart as I read the words.

Thank you so much for sharing this.

Amazing that you could remember all that! Memory usually fades rapidly after waking.
