Like a candle burning bright,
Waiting patiently through the night,
A silent beacon to those who dare,
Teaching us to learn to care.
To love our enemies
That's what we're told..
Humanity can be so cold.
To find the strength to forgive,
Every night and every day.
Sound too easy?
What does it mean to say "amen"?
It means to love,
To be sincere,
Even in the depths of fear.
Like a flame there in the dark
Sitting so still as a meadow lark
Waiting for us to think to pray
Or any day
