I am a child of light
but it’s so easy to be tempted into the dark.
In the dark there is judgement and fear,
in the light there is hope and joy.
Why do I stray?
I stray because I am human.
Yet, Jesus, who is divine,
always beckons me back.
Sometimes I fear God,
but He always welcomes me.
He must speak truth now and again,
cutting out what is evil,
but He always replaces it with good.
all there is is spoiled food,
appealing but rotten.
I rejoice in the Holy Banquet of the Divine,
it tastes as wonderful as it smells.
Every time I find myself starving,
He calls dinnertime.
How fast I run to His bosom,
into His outstretched arms.
I am His child, forever and always.
