This little light of mine

O Lord, be like wax to me
sustaining Your light in my life.

As my circumstances vary,
like the forms and vessels of a candle,
may You present enough of Yourself
to sufficiently fill all the space.

May the water of sin and doubt
be absorbed and neutralized
by Your strength.

May the light burn true
amongst many
or as a solitary flame.

The light is yours O Lord,
my life merely the wick
and if You would see fit, light other wicks from the light I shine in this place for I know
"One candle's glow can light a thousand lamps".

O Lord, be like wax to me...

I want to be a light in the darkness. And I echo your thoughts - if you see fit Lord, let my flame light other wicks around me.
