Let your light burn bright

In this dark and sterile world

Full of sorrow, full of woe

A flicker of fire in a dim lit room

Sparks a flame and begins to grow

Dancing safely upon its wick

Stretching upward as it grows

Spreading warmth and light and goodness

That this dismal world may know

From wick to wick it’s reach increases

As each light begins to glow

Spreading light among the darkness

And goodness where it goes

The blaze it fuels a passion

That the world would not have seen

Had this flame remained hidden

Underneath the devils scheme

But empassioned by transformed life

And desire for all to know

The redeeming love of Jesus

Fuels the fire that’s aglow

Let your light burn bright for the world to see

Be bold and take a stance

For the embers ever catching would forever be regretting

If they’d never learned to dance

Let your light shine bright

For all to see the redeeming God of love

Who takes your life and shapes it

for His glory up above

Your wick ignites another

Fans the flame of souls for Thee

And on and on and on it goes

Till darkness has been set free

Let your light shine bright

And ignite the fire that inside each one grows

Till the Light erases darkness

And everybody knows

Let your light burn bright for the world to See

Be bold and take a stance

For the embers ever catching would forever be regretting

If they’d never learned to dance

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
