"Every Day is First Day"

There is a light within us
That glows when we are kind
It is a light revealing
God's thoughts to our mind.

There is a light that guides us
Through valleys dark and blind
To insights that compel us
To help make life divine.

Only the meek can see them,
Only the gentle can find,
Only the pure can love
When suffering is entwined.

We can walk serenely,
When we "mind the light" within;
In gratitude, in sunshine;
In trust, when the way is dim.

If the light goes out in places
Where no human hands extend,
Gently, we are guided
By the Eternal Friend.

There is a Light, by Ruth Goodell Hartsough
