The Lord is My Light -
The Lord, Jesus Christ, is the Light of the World and the Light that gives us all greater peace and understanding.
The Lord is my light; then why should I fear?
By day and by night his presence is near.
He is my salvation from sorrow and sin;
This blessed assurance the Spirit doth bring.

This is a beautiful message from Elder David R. Stone of the Seventy. Given in 2006 his remarks entitled "Zion in the Midst of Babylon" are very applicable to us today.
We face all sorts of challenges and opposition in these latter-days. So, we share this message as a reminder and strengthener for us all. The Lord wants us to have the blessings available to all who seek Him and sincerely strive to keep His commandments. In that spirit - we share the following about overcoming the world and becoming a Zion people:
"Seduced by our culture, we often hardly recognize our idolatry, as our strings are pulled by that which is popular in the Babylonian world. Indeed, as the poet Wordsworth said: “The world is too much with us” (“The World Is Too Much with Us; Late and Soon,” in The Complete Poetical Works of William Wordsworth.)
