PARABLE OF A CANDLE

I WAS LIKE AN OLD CANDLE
BEEN BURNED IN MY DAYS
NOW THIS CANDLE IS USELESS
ABUSED IN VARIOUS WAYS

MY WAX WAS ALL MELTED
MY WICK WAS ALL BURNED
ONCE I GAVE OUT LIGHT
THEN MY GOODNESS JUST TURNED

ALL OF MY HOPES WERE GONE
I LAYED IN A HEAP OF JUNK
ALL MY LIGHT WAS NOW GONE
MY FUTURE WAS JUST SUNK

THEN IN A FRANTIC EFFORT
I CRIED THIS LITTLE PRAYER
THEN I FELT SOME WARMTH
FOR JESUS HAD APPEARED THERE

HE REMOLDED MY MELTED WAX
THE WAY HE WANTED IT TO BE
HE GAVE ME REASON TO HOPE
NOW I AM A SIGHT TO SEE

NOW I BURN FROM HIS LOVE
AND I CAST A RADIANT GLOW
FOR JESUS HEARD MY CRY
AND HE LOVES ME I KNOW

THIS CANDLE HAS LEARNED A LOT
FOR I WAS DELIVERED FROM SIN
AND NO MATTER HOW LOW YOU GO
JESUS WILL STILL BE YOUR FRIEND

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
