1. Is the light that shines within my heart

Bright enough to guide me as I walk

Thru this world so often filled with darkness

In this time when I need most to see?

Is that light bright enough for me?

Bright enough that I can always see

In a world where lights so often flicker

On a path where stumbling stones abound?

And a voice whispers through the veil,

“Let your light prevail; never let it pale.”

Calls the voice,

“Keep it bright to reach past uncertainty,

Where’er your life may lead.”

2. Other lights may fascinate the eye,

Flicker bright, allure as we go by,

But I need light that’s clear and warm and steady;

I need light reliable and sure.

And a voice whispers through the veil,

“Let your light prevail; never let it pale.”

Calls the voice,

“Keep it bright to reach past uncertainty,

Where’er your life may lead.”

Let me share this shining light with you.

We’ll stumble less; we’ll help each other through.

As others join with us, the path gets brighter,

And we’ll know joy as we go on our way.
