John Henry Newman

[Cardinal Newman, Blessed John Henry Newman] (21 February 1801 – 11 August 1890 / London, England)

The Pillar Of The Cloud

Lead, Kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom,
Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home --
Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene, -- one step enough for me.

I was not ever thus, nor pray'd that Thou
Should'st lead me on.
