By Lucia K Haase
A candle burns inside of me-
a spirit candle of the Lord.
He lights the flame that helps me see,
and keeps my mind in God-accord.
He gives me light, illuminating
thought and action every day-
He is the peace inside that sings
of utmost joy, in every way.
He gives me eyes of understanding-
I listen to my heart and find
His guidance and His reprimanding
within my spirit-light, entwined.
Rising flame of candle fire-
growing- rising ever-higher-
Holy fire in Jesus name-
I hear His voice within the flame!
