In sightless night,
terrors draw near
Nameless fears of talon and tooth
before us—an abyss
Alone and unknown in the gloom, longing for the
O sacred flame blaze forth—wisdom brought to life
With the light of hope
The warmth of love
The beacon of purpose and
Because we are all afraid of the dark
Let there be light
