This paper explores the notion of how Milton struggled with feelings of worthiness and justification and how he reconciled these feelings through his faith. The paper points out that most critics agree that Milton is referring to his blindness when he refers to "light" in the first line as well as "half my days in the dark world" in the second line. The author believes that through Milton's experience of going blind, it is possible for the reader to understand how a man of such faith might have ever questioned his value.
