Light In The Dark

Today is ‘dreich’

The Scots express it well

Dark and dreary

Drizzle from the sky

A greyness over everything

Dank and damp and dour

Enough to make you wonder

What’s the point and why


And life can be like that

The news forever grim

Corruption in high places

Everywhere just sin

Famine in Afghanistan

Poverty and pain

Migrants in the channel

Hoping life to gain


Light a candle in the dark

The wisdom for today

Do not curse the darkness

That only makes it stay

And do not make God’s Spirit sad

The words of Paul resound

Let your life be light again

Make this holy ground
