“Et Lux In Tenebris Lucet”

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

— John 1:5

Words might be hurtful,

And rejection, might be mine,

But my God redeems it,

Et lux in tenebris lucet.

Will my friends abandon me,

In this Gethsemane?

But God gets me through it,

Et lux in tenebris lucet.

Amidst mean words,

I seek my Shepherd:

My lamp is lit,

Et lux in tenebris lucet.

  1. Somehow I’m reminded of the song of childhood “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine”. Perhaps we all carry within us the light for the darkness, we just sometimes fail to know it’s there.
