Sunday Songs: Go Light Your World


“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

Galatians 6:2

There is a candle in every soul
Some brightly burning, some dark and cold
There is a Spirit who brings fire
Ignites a candle and makes His home

Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the hopeless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world
Take your candle, and go light your world

Sunday Songs was co-hosted by Rosema last year and I’ve decided to continue it.
