In times of hardships this is the only Light that saves.
Shine On Me

Shine on me your merciful light,
help me through the fearful night.
Lift me God, from the thorns of life,
so I can live my future without strife.

For too long I have been rude and rough,
inconsiderate, hasty, harsh and tough.
Lead me to the path of calm and humility,
show me Father, the way to ease and ability.

I thought I could fight any force single-handed,
but I was the perfect egotist that ever landed.
You, and You alone can open the door to peace,
a world of bliss where my sorrow will cease.

Shine on me Your incandescent love and grace;
so my life from now on will take on a new phase.
I slowly begin to know the overflowing happiness;
Your ways of wisdom shatter the gloom of sadness.

Awarded First Place.
