Once-Dark Heart

In folly I called evil good;
I called my blindness blessed sight.
Saw my death and named it life;
I laughed and loved my hopeless plight.

I raced along before the dawn
In famished love of endless night;
Ran in blackness ever thicker,
Fled in terror Thy brilliant light.

‘Till the beams of Thy radiance broke,
My blindness pierced by Thy great might,
My once-dark heart, redeemed to life,
Shall evermore in Thee delight.
