‘The Candle of the Lord’ by YPBL Chris Shanks

This morning we share Major Joy Webb’s beautiful song, ‘The Candle of the Lord’, played by our principal euphonium player, YP band leader Chris Shanks.

How great the darkness, how deep the need!
How vast the problems of indiff’rence, hate and greed.
A world rejecting, the truth once known,
And slipping down into a nightmare of its own.
Is there a light that’s strong enough to go,
And metamorphosise the darkness that we know?

I am, the candle of the Lord
And truth and love more powerful than sword!
O fan the flame, its single gleam diffuse
And let my spirit be the light that you can use
I am, the candle of the Lord
Light me

How bright the light is, from soul to soul,
A myriad tiny flames expanding to a whole,
How strong the truth it, when joined as one,
And what a miracle this shining could become,
It could transform the darkness that we know,
And clearly light the way mankind must try to go.

I am, the candle of the Lord
And truth and love more powerful than sword!
O fan the flame, its single gleam diffuse
And let my spirit be the light that you can use
I am, the candle of the Lord

Light me, o light me
