Lyrics

Like a candle flame, flick’ring small in our darkness,
Uncreated light shines through infant eyes.

Chorus:
God is with us, alleluia, come to save us, alleluia, alleluia.

Stars and angels sing, yet the earth sleeps in shadows;
can this tiny spark set a world on fire?

Yet His light shall shine from our lives, spirit blazing,
as we touch the flame of His holy fire.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Like a candle flame, flick’ring small in our darkness,
Uncreated light shines through infant eyes.

Chorus:
God is with us, alleluia, come to save us, alleluia, alleluia.

Stars and angels sing, yet the earth sleeps in shadows;
can this tiny spark set a world on fire?

Yet His light shall shine from our lives, spirit blazing,
as we touch the flame of His holy fire
