If We But Call

Here, in this world darkened understanding
Laughs at the Light because they cannot see
But this is no laughing matter because
Soon soul-dust will don Immortality

Here in this world we are called to walk holy
Worthy of the Calling that we have received
When The Light of God’s love gave understanding
And praise Him, not seeing, yet we believed

Here is this world, darkness seems the Greater
But the True Light gives light to one and all
If we but ask, Lord, Father, Creator
Pierces the darkness with Light if we call

There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man.
He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.…
John 1:9-10
