THE EVENING SHADOWS VISIT,

BRINGING DARKNESS TO THE END OF DAY.

AND IN THE STILLNESS OF THE NIGHT,

WE BOW OUR HEADS AND PRAY.

 

WE PRAY FOR LIGHT – A GLIMMER OF HOPE;

WE PRAY FOR THOSE LOST AND ALONE…

AS INTO THE DARKNESS THEY STUMBLE,

TRYING TO FIND THEIR WAY BACK HOME!

SO, LET US GATHER IN THE TWILIGHT…

LET’S LIGHT A CANDLE, YOU AND ME.

WE’LL LIGHT OUR CANDLE IN THE WINDOW

FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE!

 

AT FIRST, ‘TWILL BE BUT A GLIMMER

OF HOPE TO LIGHT THE WORLD…

BUT THERE ARE SO MANY, MANY WINDOWS

WHERE CANDLE LIGHT CAN BE UNFURLED!

LIGHT YOUR CANDLE WITH LOVE AND CARING…

LET IT BURN FOREVER AFTER!

WATCH ITS LIGHT SPREAD OVER ALL,

BRINGING SMILES AND JOYOUS LAUGHTER!

 

YES, LIGHT A CANDLE IN YOUR WINDOW…

WATCH ITS FLAME DISPEL THE NIGHT!

JUST A SINGLE, PRECIOUS CANDLE

CAN FILL THE WORLD WITH GLORIOUS LIGHT!

FOR ONE CANDLE’S TINY FLAME WILL SPREAD,

LIGHTING ANOTHER AND YET ANOTHER O’ER ALL THE LAND

UNTIL ALL THE WORLD CAN SEE ONCE MORE

MAN EMBRACING HIS FELLOW MAN!
