For many days and many nights I saw my life by my own light. My light to darkness on my bed, When evil thoughts woke in my head— They filled my heart and bent my ways, Your light cast out by my dark days. But blame on you I cannot cast Right judgment should be on me vast. But out from you instead comes love Poured down from heavens high above. Righteous and faithful have you been Your steadfast love to me again. There is no worth found in my life That you should free me from my strife. But love flows from your nature pure, The promises from you are sure, And from your fountain also flows Your light and life, so you I know. And now upon my bed I see Anew by light that comes from thee.
