The Lord Is My Light

We live in challenging times.  Uncertainty is the new norm.  I pray for us all as we navigate our way through this mortal journey we call life.  Now more than ever I find myself leaning heavily on my love of family, my faith, and on music.  Music has an energy all its own and if in listening to my arrangements you find peace and a momentary respite from your worries, it makes my heart full.  

The Lord is my light; then why should I fear?
By day and by night his presence is near.
He is my salvation from sorrow and sin;
This blessed assurance the Spirit doth bring.

The Lord is my light; tho clouds may arise,
Faith, stronger than sight, looks up thru the skies
Where Jesus forever in glory doth reign.
Then how can I ever in darkness remain?

The Lord is my light; the Lord is my strength.
I know in his might Ill conquer at length.
My weakness in mercy he covers with powr,
And, walking by faith, I am blest evry hour.

The Lord is my light, my all and in all.
There is in his sight no darkness at all.
He is my Redeemer, my Savior, and King.
With Saints and with angels his praises Ill sing.


The Lord is my light;
He is my joy and my song.
By day and by night
He leads, he leads me along.
