One Little Candle

Altar in Cuba

It is better to light just one little candle,

Than to stumble in the dark!
Better far that you light just one little candle,
All you need’s a tiny spark!
 
If we’d all say a prayer that the world would be free,
The wonderful dawn of a new day we’ll see!
And, if everyone lit just one little candle,
What a bright world this would be!
 
Let’s all light one little candle,
Why stumble on in the dark?
When the day is dark an’ dreary,
And your way is hard to find,
Don’t let your heart be weary,
Just keep this thought in mind!
 
It is better to light just one little candle,
Than to stumble in the dark!
Better far that you light just one little candle,
All you need’s a tiny spark!
 
If we’d all say a prayer that the world would be free,
The wonderful dawn of a new day we’ll see!
And, if everyone lit just one little candle,
What a bright world this would be!
 
What a bright world 
This would be!
 
“We cannot be together in heaven unless we have begun to live so in this world.”  St. Jean Vianney

  1. I love this song. This reminds me of my prom night when we sang this song to pass on the candles to the juniors. Thanks for sharing, P!

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
