There is a candle in every soul
Some brightly burning, some dark and cold
There is a Spirit who brings a fire
Ignites a candle and makes His home
So carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the helpless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world
Frustrated brother, see how he's tried to
Light his own candle some other way
See now your sister, she's been robbed and lied to
Still holds a candle without a flame
So Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the lonely, the tired and worn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world
Cause We are a family whose hearts are blazing
So let's raise our candles and light up the sky
Praying to our Father, in the name of Jesus
Make us a beacon in darkest times
So Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the helpless, deceived and poor
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the hepeless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world

    "and another came, saying, lord, behold, here is thy pound, which i have kept laid up in a napkin:"luke 19:20
    We are not to hide the gospel in our own heart.. We are to share it and bring others to the "light" of christ. When we stand before him one day, we don't want to say, "here is the gospel that was shared with me.. I kept it to myself. " no! We want to say, "thank you for the gospel.. And i shared it with everyone i came in contact with! Run to the darkness! Amen?

    Today i baked cookies and thanked my mailman. I visited an elderly woman and did her laundry. I called a widow friend and prayed with her about her overwhelming needs. I dropped a card in the mail to a friend and let them know i appreciated them,
    i prayed blessing over an irriteated step-daughter
    everyday challanges gives us oppertunity to bless and pray

    In him there is no darkness. When his holy spirit comes, dwells in us he lights our way with a better understanding of him. Our choices are different than before because we see better than before. We learn of him as we read our bibles and the words become more personel because he provides better comprehension. We walk with truth and in truth. We have a peace in knowing him as lord and savior and it shows in everything we do and say. The world can not help but see the difference in a life when god takes control. Not only are we examples but our desire to share him with others becomes a necessary thing and of uttmost importance. The love and joy we know from the savior spills over and we can help but tell of what we've seen, heard and experienced. As he has lighted the candle of our lives, his desire is that we go tell by giving a candle (the knowledge of jesus and his plan of salvation). As we share our knowledge and joy, it gives jesus the opportunity to come in and light another candle for others to see. Once each candle lights it becomes the desire of each person to get another candle lit. And on and on it goes...

    Matthew 14:5 "you are the light of the world. "
    every consecrated soul has light reflected from jesus and every soul is called by god to let their light shine upon others who are in the darkness of sin lost and astrayed. "neither do men light a candle, & put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick: and it gives light unto all that are in the house. " "your world" in the song signifies the range of a soul's influence.

    I am a teacher in healthcare and I listened to this song for the 40th thousand time and today the LORD spoke to my heart and I heard it profoundly. I saw the LORD leading me in a candle light ceremony for my students stepping out in the world to provide care for those in need and this song has inspired me to play it and to hand out the lyrics instead of the professional creed that is so over used and not GOD insprired. I see the LORD in every word. We all are in need of a candle to burn bright in our own lives and also to give it away to others. The LORD and Chris has moved me in the direction I have not been going and I am now heading home. It only takes 1 person to make a difference in this world and it is my purpose in my work and in my life to have as many of my students see GODS light in me that is so bright that they see the candle, theirs.
