Traditional Gaelic Prayer.
As the rain hides the stars,
as the autumn mist hides the hills,
as the clouds veil the blue of the sky,
so the dark happenings of my life
hide the shining of your face from me.
Yet, if I may hold your hand in darkness, it is enough,
since I know that if I stumble,
you do not fall.
