This little light

Arise, little light of mine
Now is your time to shine
Though darkness is growing
And storm winds are blowing
Now is your time to shine

The shadows are mounting in strength
Still you must burn your true length
You will pay full cost
To light the path for the lost
Still you must burn your true length

The hearts of others may die
Yet keep your fire alive
Friends may betray
And turn from the way
Yet keep your fire alive

Take heart, little light of mine
Now is your hour to shine
Though it is lonely to be
Aflame in solitary
Now is your hour to shine

When evil begins to show
Be bold in your noble glow
When sacred is defaced
Right and wrong, misplaced
Be bold in your noble glow

Remember why you were made
When all good things seem to fade
God’s light evermore
To bring shipwrecks to shore
When all good things seem to fade

Be strong, little light of mine
This dark world needs you to shine
Till all wounds are mended
Till long night is ended
This dark world needs you to shine
