A Hymn: You Will Light My Candle

Author:

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

The Composed Song

1. When the life’s storm hath tossed on me

When it has overwhelmed my heart

When all my way is disordered

And darkness has covered me up

Chorus

It is my Lord and my God

Who will light my candle

Also he ‘ll even shine his light

And enlighten my darkened path


2. When the enemy arose with war

Enemy puts out my candle

And all that I have is finished

And I am walking in darkness

Chorus


3. When I neither have thought of ‘morrow

Nor know how ‘morrow will look like

Because of bitterness and suffering

That have covered my spirit up

Chorus


4. And when I get to the savior

And when I get to Jesus Christ

I cast all my burdens on him

I know he will deliver me

Chorus


5. It is with Christ that I have rest

Jesus Christ is even the light

And he has lighted my candle

He is the light unto my path

Chorus
