Lyrics for the Day – In My Hour of Darkness

It’s Emmylou’s 69th birthday and she even got writing credits on this classic with Gram Parsons

In my hour of darkness
In my time of need
Oh Lord, grant me vision
Oh, Lord, grant me speed
Once I knew a young man
Went driving through the night
Miles and miles without a word
But just his high beam lights
Who’d have ever thought they’d build
Such a deadly Denver bend
To be so strong
To take so long
As it would till the end
 
In my hour of darkness
In my time of need
Oh Lord, grant me vision
Oh, Lord, grant me speed
 
Another young man safely strummed
His silver stringed guitar
And he played to people everywhere
Some say he was a star
But he was just a country boy
His simple songs confess
And the music he had in him
So very few possess
 
In my hour of darkness
In my time of need
Oh Lord, grant me vision
Oh, Lord grant me speed
 
Then there was an old man
Kind and wise with age
And he read me just like a book
And he never missed a page
And I loved him like my father
And I loved him like my friend
And I knew his time could shortly come
But I did not know just when
 
In my hour of darkness
In my time of need
Oh Lord, grant me vision
Oh, Lord grant me speed
Oh Lord, grant me vision
Oh, Lord grant me speed
