Did you ever walk through
the deep, dark woods,
Where the sunbeams never shine,
And the birdless gloom
brings sense of doom
That shudders along our spine?
Did your spirit sink and your heart beat fast
While you felt like a creature at bay
Till a sudden shaft of sunlight turned
The night of the woods to day?
Such is the secret of life, my friend.
It can seem to be darker than night
Till you open your heart and let Him in,
Then suddenly it is Light!
