Are You Shining In The Darkness - Poem by Cecelia Weir

Are You Shining In The Darkness
Even though its day.
To show forth righteousness
In the Lord
Or do you sometimes stray.

The race is not given
To the swift.
Neither to the strong
But to the one who holds out
And stands against the wrong.

Are You Shining In The Darkness
Even though its day.
Or has the darkness
Blinded you
From passing a kind say.

You can become discouraged
You can become dismayed.
But this is
The narrow path
And Jesus is the way.

If you 're shining
In the darkness.
Even though its day.
Needless that I tell you
The Lord is on His way.

You just shine, shine, shine
No matter what
One does or say
For these are His blessings
We show the world each day.

You can become discouraged
You can become dismayed
But this is the narrow path
And Jesus is the way.
