I’m sure no one desires
Sadness, hurt, and pain
And I can light the world up now
​And stop the endless strain.

I raise my eyes and daven,
I smile knowingly,
I’m sure that good will come of this
If only they light me.

A match comes closer, closer
A flame lights up the air
My soul soars up much higher,
A candle now is there.
