I Walk In The Light

Affirming The Classics: Walk In The Light, So Shalt Thou Know – Bernard Barton

I walk in The Light, as I know
The fellowship of Love
God’s Spirit is a part of me
And flows from Light above

I walk in The Light, and I find
My Heart melding with His
I Am enshrined in the Pure Light
In me, no darkness is

I walk in The Light, even death
I embrace, as I share
The Joy, the Love, the Light, the Truth
And Christ awaits me there

I walk in The Light, the Love way
My unknown Path glows bright
God exists in the Heart of me
And God Himself is Light

Trina Graves – 16th October 2019


About This Poem

I did not know of this hymn, but came across it when looking for another one. I was surprised at how positive it was for being written so long ago. So it didn’t need much tweaking to turn it into an Affirmation for my series of Affirming The Classics.

Here is the original…

Walk in the light: so shalt thou know
That fellowship of love
His Spirit only can bestow
Who reigns in light above

Walk in the light; and thou shalt find
Thy heart made truly His
Who dwells in cloudless light enshrined
In whom no darkness is

Walk in the light; and e’en the tomb
No fearful shade shall wear
Glory shall chase away its gloom
For Christ has conquered there

Walk in the light: and thine shall be
No thornless path, but bright
For God, by grace, shall dwell in thee
And God Himself is Light

Bernard Barton 1784 – 1849
