Lead Kindly Light

Lead Kindly Light, Lead Thou me On


Long ago
I recieved a little
prayer card reading:

Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.

A simple sentence
that has illuminated
my life ever since

Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.

It is written
by John Henry Newman
Cardinal, theologian and poet

Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.
