I know I'm but a candle, pulled from a little box,
And set among the thorns in this big olí world of rocks.
Being weary I sat down, in the shading of a tree.
And there in the shadow of my sin, I sat in misery.
I thought I had the answers, but didnít have the spark.
I sat alone in torment, ignorant, cold, dark.
I was an unlit candle, worthless for anything,
Until one day I saw a light, from under thorns, a King!
I sat among the shadows Ė but saw a flicker in His Word,
And then that flicker whispered. A still, small voice I heard.
That Light had died for just three days, but showered me with grace,
As love was lit throughout the world, to all the human race.
As I stepped out and saw the light from under that old tree,
I was lit with flames of hope - which made me wholly free!
Yes, a strange thing happened. It happened long ago.
My ears could hear, my eyes could see, His warmth in all its glow.
My heart was lit and came to life. Iím but a humble light,
But with the flames from all of us, He shines so very bright.
I light the place where 'ere I go, it is my job you see,
-To be a Christian candle. There is nothing else to be.

Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, ď I am the Light of the world;
he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life."
" I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.Ē
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
