Courage

HERE BURNS MY CANDLE




















AND IT SHALL NOT WANE
















THOUGH DARKNESS SURROUND



















AND THOUGH BODY BE SLAIN

HERE BURNS MY CANDLE
THOUGH FLAME MAY BE SMALL
AND I’LL NOT BETRAY IT
WHAT E’ER MAY BEFALL

HERE BURNS MY CANDLE
WITH HOPE IN ITS LIGHT
REMINDING ME ALWAYS
TO STAND AND TO FIGHT

HERE BURNS MY CANDLE
I’LL NEVER RETREAT
NO MATTER MY FATE
OR WHAT TROUBLES I MEET

HERE BURNS MY CANDLE
THOUGH I AM NOT STRONG
I’LL CONQUER MY FOE
AND TAUNT DEATH WITH A SONG
