Jesus-- Our Light, Our Life, Our Righteousness

Quatrain found in The Journals of Jim Elliot:

"My soul is night, my heart is steel.
I cannot see, I cannot feel:
For light, for life, I must appeal
In simple faith to Jesus."
-James Proctor

Verse that has been going through my head incessantly the past day or so:

"For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit." (Romans 8:3,4, emphasis mine)
