Igniter of Hearts

There are truths here
That must be told.
The torch we carry
Lies in our heart’s soul.

The task is ahead,
The workers they are few.
Counted as an army,
On His commands, we move!

One often leads,
And Jesus is the One.
True lighter of torches,
And hope for our run.

His torch is a hopeful light
Meant for us all.
The Igniter of Hearts
Sends forward His call.

The outward light cast
Hath an inwardly home.
Our dirt was found fertile,
The seed it was sown.

Now stand up tall
And carry your torch on high.
Cause the source of our fuel
Will never run dry.

The lights in our soul
Have a true heavenly glow.
They’re pillars of fire
Where darkness dares not go.

Light of Thy countenance,
Dear Lord, to them show.
Oh, Igniter of Hearts
-From torch to torch, now flow!

Stick figures with torches
