Light a light

Light a light

Light a light that shines within me     
Deep within my soul
Kindle a fire, burn inside me
Cleanse and make me whole

May I shine and beam a light of
Your unceasing love   
Poured within this heart of mine by ~
My Father in Heav’n above

Purge my soul of wayward sin Lord
Purify the dross
So that I may come before you
Kneeling at the cross

Take me out into the world to
Radiate God’s light
That men may be drawn towards my
Flick’ring in the night

When my earthly witness ends Lord
Let my soul take wings
Fly to my eternal home where
Light unending reigns
