Carry Your Candle
























Video: You Tube

"Go Light Your World"

Written and performed by Kathy Troccoli

There is a candle in every soul

Some brightly burning, some dark and cold

There is a Spirit who brings fire

Ignites a candle and makes His home

*****

Carry your candle, run to the darkness

Seek out the hopeless, confused and torn

Hold out your candle for all to see it

Take your candle, and go light your world

*****

Take your candle, and go light your world

Frustrated brother, see how he's tried to

Light his own candle some other way

See now your sister, she's been robbed and lied to

Still holds a candle without a flame

*****

Carry your candle, run to the darkness

Seek out the lonely, the tired and worn

Hold out your candle for all to see it

Take your candle, and go light your world

*****

Take your candle, and go light your world

We are a family whose hearts are blazing

So let's raise our candles and light up the sky

Praying to our Father, in the name of Jesus

Make us a beacon in darkest times

*****

Carry your candle, run to the darkness

Seek out the helpless, deceived and poor

Hold out your candle for all to see it

Take your candle, and go light your world

Carry your candle, run to the darknessCheck Spelling

*****
Seek out the hopeless, confused and torn

Hold out your candle for all to see it

Take your candle, and go light your world

Take your candle, and go light your world

Wonderful song and video, Kathy!! I have heard Kathy Troccoli at Women of Faith several times, and she is just so humble and awesome. She lives what she teaches and sings.

Have a joyful Sunday!

Kathy... beautiful post. When I was a little girl I use to watch a Sunday morning program with my grandmother... the theme song went something like your post...
"if everyone lit just one little candle, what a bright world this would be..."...
blessings. Dixie

Kathy, I love this song! I actually sang it at church not too long ago....we had a missionary presenting his field that day. Chris Rice sings it also and I like both renditions of it. Thanks for sharing!

Happy Sunday, Kathy:
I'm a huge Kathy Trocolli fan and like to hear her sing and speak about the things she writes in her journal. This song is a great inspiration. So glad you posted it today.

i like this song. once i did a devotional for ladies group candles. the point was it only takes one candle to light the whole room full of candles. each one lights another. we are to be that light and spread to each other one at a time.

Great song! Kathy is one of my favorites. Her song would be a great theme song to go with a new book I have just finished, The Hole In our Gospel. Thanks for posting.

I remember singing that song is a Cantada at church. In fact when I saw the title of your post, I started humming it, lol!
Hope you had a great weekend and hope you're enjoying spring weather.

Found your blog thru Danette @ handknitsthatblossom. I love this song! Have you read any of Kathy Troccoli's books? My favorite is "Falling in Love with Jesus" by KT & Dee Brestin. It's a "must-read" for any woman. Looking forward to keeping up with your blogs!
