"THE CANDLE"

Verse 1
Did you know the path is cloudy?
Did you see I’d lost my way?
Did you feel my heart was empty?
Did you hear my spirit pray?
Did you know my world is dying?
Did you see my aching need?
Did you feel my heart was crying?
Did you hear my spirit breathe?

Chorus 1
To keep the candles burning for me. Maybe now, or on the day
When the journey gets too long, when I am too weak to pray;
Keep the candles burning for me, I will see them and be strong,
-And they will guide me home to You.

Verse 2
You must know the endless yearning; You must love me, for I see
Countless beacons bravely burning,
Stars that say that You’re with me.
So I’ll walk in to the darkness
Guided by the angels’ song,
And the Morning Star will find us waltzing in the dawn.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
Is that a voice I hear inside, urging me to carry on?
Is that Your heart I hear beside me, beating out, “You’re not alone”?
‘Cause when I’m feeling cold and lonely,
I look up and there’s a sign
That I’m not the one and only here tonight.

Verse 3
Keep our trust. Watch with the angels guarding o’er the stars tonight;
Keep the solemn midnight vigil,
Hold me close with all Your might.
For I’ll be home in the morning,
If I walk by candle light;
I am not the one and only here tonight.

Chorus 2
Keep the candles burning for me. Maybe now, or on the day
When the journey gets too long, when I am too weak to pray.
Keep the candles burning for me, I will see them and be strong,
-And they will guide me home to You.
[Keep the candles burning, burning, yeah]
Guide Me home.
[Gotta keep the candles burning, burning, yeah,
Guide Me home. ]
[Gotta keep the candles burning, burning, yeah,
Guide Me home. Gottakeep the candles burning!
