Life’s Dark Maze

September 7, 2016

While life’s dark maze I tread,

and griefs around me spread,

be thou my guide;

bid darkness turn to day, 

wipe sorrow’s tears away,

nor let me ever stray

from thee aside.

—verse 3 of “My Faith Looks Up to Thee”

from the current edition of

 The United Methodist Hymnal, page 452

Powerful verse.

Might be a good prayer for a lot of us today, for a lot of reasons —

While life’s dark maze I tread,

and griefs around me spread,

be thou my guide;

bid darkness turn to day, 

wipe sorrow’s tears away,

nor let me ever stray

from thee aside.

Amen?
