Light Within

As I light my candle here today

Light a flame, dear Lord, in my heart

May it burn for You

May I be present to You

For You are always present to me

Only I move away

And am distracted

May this flame be both a symbol

And a reminder to me

Not only of Your Nearness

But also, of Your Love

May I come to know

And to trust

That whatever I am doing

There is always a Light within

It is forever present

A Spark of You alive in me

The Gift of Your Love

Closer than breathing

Nearer to me than I am to myself

You bring this precious Gift

And place it in my heart

May my heart always be

Like a lighted candle

Forever ready to shine

In the service of Your Love


This day and every day
