"This Little Light" - Addison Road

In the Mass readings at the moment the theme of light/light of the world/being a light to others is very present. Here's a song that I keep coming back to at the moment that acts as a personal response to the call from God to let our light/his light shine out to others through our actions, attitudes, etc... through the way we live our lives. It takes the words of the chorus from the well-known sandles + candles folk hymn and does its own thing with it.

"This Little Light" - Addison Road

There’s a little flame inside us all
Some shine bright, some shine small
The rains will come and the waters rise
But don’t you ever lose your light
In this life you will know
Love and pain, joy and sorrow
So when it hurts, when times get hard
Don’t forget whose child you are

This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine,
gonna let it shine

May you live each day with no regret
Make the most of every chance you get
Let your eyes get wide when you look at the stars
With the same sense of wonder as a child’s heart
With the ones you love treasure the time
And for those who are gone keep their memories alive
Hold on to your dreams don’t ever let go
There’s a fire inside you burning with hope

Repeat Chorus

There will be days when you want to give up
When the clouds settle in
But after the rain comes the sun
Don’t you ever forget
One day there will be no more pain
And we will finally see Jesus’ face
So until then I’m gonna to try
To brave the dark and let my little light shine

Repeat Chorus

There’s a little light inside us all
