Words and music by James Medary Cooper

Lyrics:

He takes the rocky road and clears it for my feet;
He takes the crooked path and makes it straight for me;
the thistles and thorns that make my life so torn,
His love can make their tangle smooth and neat.

(Cho.)
Out in my darkness there's a light,
Jesus my candle;
in the night He's my light.
Je-us my candle,
in the night, He's my light.

He takes the lonely hours and makes a joyful time;
He takes my empty cup and fills with purest wine;
the hunger I feel as I drag my weary heel,
His love can fill the table where I dine.

(Cho.)

When the cold winds blow
and I hear His voice I know
that in the midst of winter's harshest storm
His love can take the cold and make it warm.

He takes the rocky road and clears it for my feet;
He takes the crooked path and makes it straight for me;
the thistles and thorns that make my life so torn,
His love can make their tangle smooth and neat.

(Cho.)

1998 James M. Cooper
