Lead Me From Darkness To Light

I was heartbroken to hear about the suicide bombing attacks in Sri Lanka, targeting churches and hotels, killing 290+ people, including Christian worshippers, on-duty law enforcement, and other children of God.


I turned to the music of Aradhna of India, whose work I've been following, to listen to and meditate on a worship song in an Indo-Aryan language. The lyrics of "Asato Ma" were particularly powerful. Translation below:


Lead me from untruth to truth

Lord Lead me from darkness to light

Lord Jesus, lead me from the final death to fullness in immortality


Jesus, may peace be upon him

Without you I am incomplete

Grant me the gift of seeing you

Lead me from untruth to truth, Lord
