A Candle Burning

This song, A Candle Burning, came to me about a year ago, and I finally got it recorded. To stop the audio player, press the pause button on the right side. Then press play to start the song again.


And here is the Youtube video for the song.

Lyrics and guitar chords/tabs to A Candle Burning:

G                   C
Even in the darkest night
There’s a candle burning
There’s a candle burning

Even when you can’t see its light

There’s a candle burning
There’s a candle burning

C  D                      G   Em   C
It’s burning just for you
It’s burning just for you

Even in the coldest wind

There’s a candle burning
There’s a candle burning

Even when you fall down again

There’s a candle burning
There’s a candle burning

It’s burning just for you
It’s burning just for you

It’s burning just for you
It’s burning just for you

Even in the hardest rain

There’s a candle burning
There’s a candle burning

Even in your deepest pain

There’s a candle burning
There’s a candle burning

It’s burning just for you
It’s burning just for you

It’s burning just for you
It’s burning just for you

    This is beautiful. And I really love your voice this way. A Candle Burning seems very different from the style I usually hear from you, but I love this too! So soft and sweet and melodic, like a lullaby. Also love the keyboard!

    This is a beautiful song which makes one feel graced by The Lord’s presence and peace. I can’t thank you enough for this song. i would love to have the sheet music for this or the piano notes so my afterschool program children’s chorus could sing it. I will continue to visit your site for this. I plan to have our kids sing The Turkey song. Your other songs are cute funny and uplifting. They are what all of us need ThankYou and God Bless You
