The Candle Song (Like a candle flame)

Like a candle flame
Flickering small in our darkness
Uncreated light
Shines through infant eyes

God is with us, alleluia (Men)
God is with us, alleluia (Women)
Come to save us, alleluia (Men)
Come to save us (Women)
Alleluia! (All)

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

    Hi Graham,
    I am the Choirmaster at Carclaze Methodist Church in St Austell. Services often include your music in Mission Praise and my favourite is Shine Jesus Shine. I was so inspired to hear The Candle Song on Songs of Praise last Sunday. Is it possible to purchase this music.

    The children at St May and St Pancras sing this incredibly beautiful song every year at their Christingle and Nativity. I am so happy their lovely music teacher gave me the details for this link. I now have it on my iPod playlist.

    Dear Graham
    Do you sell the sheet music of 'Candle flame'? As an author with the same publishers, I know it appears in A & C Black's 'Everyone's singing, Lord' but that's not the quite the same version as performed on your recording.

    I'd love my choir to sing this anthem at our Advent service!

    Best wishes

    Sue Nicholls
