The Lord is My Light


We sang this song in sacrament meeting this past Sunday, Braden was home sick; it was hard for me not to tear up as I sat there thinking how much I love my Heavenly Father, how much he has been my strength thru everything. I Truly believe my Heavenly Father is my LIGHT.


My favorite verse is #3, the lord is my light, the Lord is my strength, The Lord has been my ultimate strength thru this tough decision I made 16 months ago, I would have never known The Allen’s were my angels family, without the strength of my Lord on my side and with me every minute I would have never placed my angel. He gave me the confirmation I needed to choose Evelyn's family, the strength when she was 2 days old to remember why I was placing her and not keep her. The Lord is my Light!

The Lord Is My Light
 

1. The Lord is my light; then why should I fear?

By day and by night his presence is near.

He is my salvation from sorrow and sin;

This blessed assurance the Spirit doth bring.


[Chorus]

The Lord is my light;

He is my joy and my song.

By day and by night he leads,

He leads me along.


2. The Lord is my light; tho clouds may arise,

Faith, stronger than sight, looks up thru the skies

Where Jesus forever in glory doth reign.

Then how can I ever in darkness remain?


3. The Lord is my light; the Lord is my strength.

I know in his might I’ll conquer at length.

My weakness in mercy he covers with pow’r,

And, walking by faith, I am blest ev’ry hour.



4. The Lord is my light, my all and in all.

There is in his sight no darkness at all.

He is my Redeemer, my Savior, and King.

With Saints and with angels his praises I’ll sing.
