    Dear Lord,
    Please hear my simple prayer.
    I’m lost in such deep despair.
    Guide me to light.

    Dear Lord,
    Darkness has conquered me.
    I’m blind and I cannot see
    My way to the light.

    You bid the sun to rise.
    You light the stars.
    The dark must yield to thee,
    Yield to infinite light.

    Dear Lord,
    Out of Eternity,
    Could you spare a thought for me?
    A moment of light?

    Dear Lord,
    You who can read the heart,
    You know I will do my part,
    I just need some light.

    Out of the depths,
    Out of the shadows,
    Out of the bleak despair,
    I call your name.
    And by your name
    I ask you to hear my prayer.

    By your command,
    Every storm must leave behind a rainbow.
    It’s raging in my heart, where is my rainbow?
    Guide me to the light.

    Dear Lord,
    The worst of my misery
    Is loosing the sight of thee,
    Banished from light.

    Dear Lord,
    Remember your promise, please.
    You said all who ask receive.
    I’m asking for light.

    You bid the sun to rise.
    You light the stars.
    The dark must yield to thee,
    Yield to infinite light.

    You bid the sun to rise.
    You light the stars.
    Please let it be your will
    To shine your light in my heart.
