“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying,
‘I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.'” (John 8:12)



When dark and gray

Are the clouds above me,

When tossed are the branches

Of the tree,


When deeply quiet

Is the bird’s song,

When the wind blows

Fierce and strong,


When rain falls

Upon the ground,

When dampness and cold

Seem to abound,


I cry out for You,

Your Name I call,

Asking You to save me

From it all,


To lift me high

In Your arms,

Where Your embrace

Wonderfully warms,


To dry my tears,

To kiss away the rain,

To wash away my hurt,

To erase my pain,


To sing of Heaven,

To smile with Your love,

To remind me of treasures

Waiting high above…


And suddenly sunshine

Seems to abound,

For eternal light

In Your eyes I’ve found,


Your Voice, my Jesus,

Is the sweetest song,

In Your arms

I forever belong,


Yes, when dark and gray

Are the clouds above me,

I rejoice in the Sunshine

You are to me!
