Flashlight's Flame

The fine flashlight's flame fills
The cold dark room of lies;
Replacing them with truth,
As found by seeking eyes.

The bright flashlight's flame fights
The deceit of devil;
Defeating the foe's guile,
By using the Lord's will.

Light of Father flashes,
Signalling from heaven;
Hear the words of wisdom,
Let ears and mind open.

Allow the heart to feel
The warmth of Father's flare;
Trust in the clear message,
Receive God's loving care.

Persuade those who are lured
By enticing tactics;
Help them find the right path,
Keep them from evil tricks.

Night is about to fall,
The shadows do the same;
Make the perfect faith glow,
Turn on the flashlight's flame.
