I am the candle of the Lord,
And truth and love more powerful than sword
O fan the flame, its single gleam diffuse,
And let my spirit be the light that you can use.
I am the candle of the Lord!

I read somewhere recently that “the candle is a symbol of the spirit of man“. To be honest I didn’t really get that when I read it. However having thought about it a bit more I realised that we are probably meant to symbolise the unlit candle, as a candle that hasn’t been lit is not fulfilling it’s purpose, just as when we don’t have God in our life, we are incomplete and will not be fulfilling our purpose in life.

Without God we cannot fulfil our true purpose, so let God into your life and let His spirit give you the power to fulfil your purpose in life.
