“Jesus Gives Me Light”
By Valroy Smith
Carson City Correctional Facility, Carson City, Michigan
When the darkness I am stolen from and not sold,
The light goes out without you.
When the fire goes cold, I don’t know what to do.
When I alone, I’m confused and lost.
When I’m mistreating others and stoned, I’ve walked away from the true boss.
But when I’m in you, the fire shines bright in me.
I know what to do, for the path is easy for me to see.
You allow me to be alive, he comforts me & keeps me warm.
You save me & allow me not to die, I’m thankful to have been born.
Jesus gives me the light,
which keeps my spirit bright
I talk to him every day.
When I’m awake & when I pray.
God guides me to the promise land.
God is what gets me to stand.
I don’t ever want to ask you why.
Why do you let me steal or lie?
The real question is how can you love me for me
& the answer is because I have your breath of live in me.
To my creature of all
just wanted to thank you for all.
