Read Aloud Poetry

I Am a Candle

I am a candle
Because God loves me
I have a new heart
And faith to see.

I am a candle
Standing tall
Set on His path
I've heard His call.

I am a candle
Shining a light
In the darkness

And into the night.

I am a candle
With others upon this land
And we cannot be hid
For we obey His command.

Matthew 5:16
Let your light so shine
before men, that they
may see your good works,
and glorify your Father
which is in heaven.
