Go Light Your World - By Chris Rice

There is a candle in every soul                        Some burning brightly, some dark & cold                    
There is a spirit who brings a fire                    Ignites a candle and makes her home

Chorus:
Carry your candle, run to the darkness          Seek out the helpless, confused & torn
Hold out your candle, for all to see it               Take your candle, go light your world

Take your candle, go light your world

Frustrated brother, see how he's tried to       light his own candle, some other way &
see now your sister she's been robbed &      lied to still holds a candle, without a flame

Carry your candle, run to the darkness           Seek out the helpless, confused & torn
Hold out your candle, for all to see it                Take your candle, go light your world

 Chrystal                                                                   Take your candle, go light your world


       We are a family whose hearts are blazing
       So let's raise our candles and light up the sky
       Praying to our Father, in the name of Jesus  
       Make us a beacon in darkest times.

       Carry your candle, run to the darkness       
       Seek out the helpless, deceived and poor
       Hold our your candle, for all to see it            
       Take your candle, & go light your world
       Take your candle, go light your world
