A Prayer Out Of Darkness

"The end of all good music is to affect the soul."
-Claudio Monteverdi-


In an earlier post, I wrote that there were three songs that guided me as I picked up the broken pieces of my life. The first song was The Warrior is a Child.

I cannot find the right words to describe to you how all three songs led me out of the dark. But on those times when I was desolate, I never really felt alone just by listening to them. Those were the times when I just listened... and listened well.

While the first song helped me find my courage, this song embodied my desperate call for help. It served as my prayer when I had no strength left to utter a word.

Until now, I cannot help being teary-eyed every time I listen to this song. Those days were my darkest. Yet the sun found its way to shine in my life again. Indeed, music is the language of the soul.

I am where I am now because of HIM... and all for HIS glory.



Lead me Lord
lead me by the hand
and help me face the rising sun
comfort me through all the pain
that life may bring

There's no other hope
that I can lean upon
Lead me Lord,
lead me all my life...

Walk by me Walk by me
across the lonely roads that i may face
take my arms and let Your hand
show me the way

Show the way to live inside Your heart
All my days,
all my life...

You are my light
You're the lamp upon my feet

All the Time, my Lord I need You there

You are my light

I cannot live alone

let me stay by Your guiding love

All through my life
Lead me Lord...

Lead me Lord,
even though at times
I'd rather go alone my way
help me take the right direction

Take Your road
Lead me Lord
and never leave my side
all my days, all my life...

You are my light
You're the lamp upon my feet

All the Time, my Lord I need You there

You are my light

I cannot live alone

let me stay by Your guiding love

All through my life...


Lead me Lord...





Blessings to all,

PinkLady March 28, 2009 at 10:47 PM  

Hi RAY, the bottomline is FAITH and HOPE. We just have to BELIEVE and every stumbling block will become a stepping stone towards our goal. In the end, we only have ourselves to rely on. Without faith, everything will fall apart. Music is the best tool that God gave us.

Just keep on believing!

Hi Bing,
This song is soooo Beautiful. I am going to download it for me to listen to and help me with my grieving process. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.
You have such a beautiful soul.
Take Care,
Janet :)

PinkLady April 4, 2009 at 8:59 AM  

hi JANET, please do so. believe me, this song is so soothing to a wounded/broken soul. it speaks of our pain and our desire to rise above our circumstances. it speaks of hope and light. it speaks of complete surrender to HIS will when everything doesn't make sense. i'm so glad you like it.:)

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
