Let your light so shine for others
this is my daily prayer…
to radiate God’s lovely light
through hope, and love, and care.
But my lamplight is a small one,
often shining just on me,
and at times it’s bent and broken
so the light is hard to see.
Please shine your light within me, God,
reveal how I may grow
in your bright and loving kindness
so others see your glow.
For you are able to do more
than this lantern of my own.
I need your power and your strength
for love more brightly shown.
I may be bent and broken, but
your perfect light will shine
each time I let your love flow through
this faulty lamp of mine.
