When within a dark tunnel without light
We feel a sadness which wants to stay
Within our hearts own darkness, we walk
On an unseen path where each step lays

We feel alone as if all we have done
Has no true meaning or value at all
For the path in the darkened tunnel
Seems more like a dark foreboding hall

Our hope seems now to begin to fade
Will anything in life be the same again
But then a breath of fresh air comes
Into the darkness helping us breathe again

And the unseen breath moves our hearts
As we see Gods radiant light to begin
The place where you now find yourself
No longer in darkness keeps you locked in

In your mind, you now begin to understand
There’s more to life than what one sees
And within your heart, you embrace the love
Which causes many seeking souls to believe

That beginning day when we first were born
There was a tender touch we would cling to
As we begin each day to embrace this world
His touch, in our hearts soon would move

Comes a time after trying to do it alone
We find ourselves to become a cup not full
Because we did not drink enough of His love
Whose grace will help us make it through

At the end of the once dark tunnel opens a door
As you feel such spiritual freedom to begin anew
Finding that each new step now taken in life
Leads you from sin to a God who loves you true.

Psalm 51:10-12
Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast
spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me
the joy of Your salvation And sustain me with a willing

Romans 12:2
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed
by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what
the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and
