First Line: If I can bear your love like a lamp before me
Last Line: A lamp in darkness.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Love


If I can bear your love like a lamp before me,
When I go down the long steep Road of Darkness,
I shall not fear the everlasting shadows,
Nor cry in terror.

If I can find out God, then I shall find Him,
If none can find Him, then I shall sleep soundly,
Knowing how well on earth your love sufficed me,
A lamp in darkness.
