One More Candle

I look out at the ocean,
At the waters of the sea,
At the never-ending passage of time.
Relive those memories
That have come to be,
And remember that age
Is just a state of mind.

(chorus):
One more candle
Is left to burn.
One more candle
Lights the sky.
With God by my side,
I let faith be my guide
As I make a wish
Upon the stars that shine.

I walk along the shoreline,
Along the water's boundaries,
And feel the wet sand
Beneath my feet.
The past is behind me,
I let it slip free
And take me to a future
Filled with possibilities.

One more candle
Is left to burn.
One more candle
Lights the sky.
With God by my side,
I let faith be my guide
As I make a wish
Upon the stars that shine.

In this time of rebirth
That comes once a year,
On this day of celebration
For life everywhere,
Old becomes new again
And lessons are learned.
One more candle is lit
To linger and burn.

One more candle
Is left to burn.
One more candle
Lights the sky.
With God by my side,
I let faith be my guide
As I make a wish
Upon the stars that shine.

For each new year
That comes and goes,
For every birthday
That passes by,
One more candle
Is left to burn.
One more candle
Lights the sky.

It's so easy to commend faithfulness, because we believe that God is the effector of it all and gives it to His beloved (like you) as a gift. This prompted me to read your other works, thanks!
