With every candle lit
A prayer of hope was said.
With every tear drop cried
A prayer of faith was given.
With every fear expressed
A prayer of uncertainty followed
United together as one
God covered us in love.
He wrapped his arms around those suffering.
He walked with those that needed reassurance.
And he carried those who were too weak to continue.
He showed himself amongst the pain and anguish.
He turned fears and tears into strength and courage.
He saw the gifts he had offered and heard his words of wisdom.
Surrounded by candle light on this night
God came to help us win the fight.
