by Swami Kriyananda
“Thy light shines within us,
And the long night of our sin
Flees before the sunrays of Thy love.
–Thy Light within Us Shining”

Thy light within us shining
        Has shown where freedom lies:
From earthly walls confining
        To soar in Spirit’s skies.
How oft, like sheep, we’ve strayed apart!
        Now, guided by Thy ray,
In inner freedom of the heart
        Our night has turned to day!
