Of the many gifts I've received in my life
The finest are the ones money can't buy
Not long ago, my father gave such a gift to me
When he shared these words that made me cry

Son, the light was worth the candle
The warmth was worth the cold
The conversation worth the wine
And what I've learned has been worth growing old

If I leave this world tomorrow
Happily I can say
The light was worth the candle
At the end of the day

Give it all you've got
Whatever you do, trust your heart
The journey's worth more
Much more than the gold

Remember when you're reaching
Reaching so high for the prize
Keep your feet on the ground
And hold on to your soul
Hold on to your soul

For the light was worth the candle
The warmth was worth the cold
The conversation worth the wine
And what I've learned has been worth growing old

If I leave this world tomorrow
Happily I can say
The light was worth the candle
At the end of the day
