There is a light that burns for all to see
Into the darkest of windows
Through the shutters that lock
Into the doors that are bolted
Sealed tight and slammed shut.
Into the hearts of the lonely
Into the souls of the bleak.
Into the broken down person hands raised in defeat
This light is delivered through hands that hold tight
Through the promise of tomorrow
Through the understanding of the night
It’s in all good deeds
But most small
It’s through love and compassion
This light guides us all.
It’s a light that burns brighter
At the end of every year
It’s a light that comes from all good things…
From the best of intentions
From the hope that light brings
Blinding the evil, whose intentions are dark.
It outshine your mistakes
And every ill thought
It is the light of the heart
That will shine through us all.
