Feast of St. John Henry Newman

Newman’s Prayer

Lead Kindly Light 

 

Lead, Kindly Light, amidst the encircling gloom. 

Lead me on!

The night is dark, and I am far from home,

Lead me on!

Guide my feet; I do not ask to see 

The distant scene; one step enough for me.

 

 

Meanwhile, along the narrow rugged path, You yourself have trodden,

Lead, Saviour, lead me home in childlike faith,

Home to my God.

To rest forever after earthly strife

In the calm light of everlasting life.

 

St. John Henry Newman Pray for us.
