Little candles,

Little candles,
Burning with the Light of Christ,
Luminaries,
Set on the altar for the World,
Cease not to shine.
This is your time.

As Darkness grows,
Diminish not!
You will conquer.
Lit from within,
Your Source,
The Remedy for Sin.

Little candles,
Prevail to set afire,
A world on tiptoe,
Waiting to see in your glow,
The Revelation of sons and daughters,
In the smiling Face of God.
