Burning Bright




Blowing out someone else’s candle doesn’t make yours shine any brighter

Burn, burn as bright as you can.

Never let anyone dim your light.

You are YOU, no one can take that away from you.

So burn in all the glory you can.

Remember the candle that burns gives light.


Haven’t you seen the Sun.

How beautiful it is?

It’s the brightness that gives light,

Yet no one can look to it eye to eye.

So burn bright like the Sun.

To bring life around.


The moon so soothing its light.

It takes its light from the Sun.

It shows light in the darkness.

And calms the heart with its softness.

So, you burn to give light at night.

Gleam silver all around.


Or the Stars, as beautiful they are.

Sparkle, twinkle and give light.

They are the lamps of lowest heaven.

Shows direction to those aboard.

So you give light like the stars afar.

Like a diamond set on the sky.
