Watch it glimmer, watch it glow

a single flame that lights our way home

just a small flicker, a gentle light

that takes us onward through the night

Watch it glimmer watch it glow

we only see a little but still we know

there’s a purpose behind this journey we take

and very soon we will see more of the way

Watch it glimmer, watch it glow

our story still continues to unfold

the flame dances as the wind blows strong

we walk slow and steady and carry on

the night is dark but our flame glows bright

keeping us with our vision and our sight

Watch it glimmer, watch it glow

just a little longer, we’re almost home

we press on though weary and tired

we know this journey will be worth it when we arrive

Watch it glimmer, watch it glow

this single flame it seems to know

that there’s a reason why we’re rushing home through the night

someone awaits for us to behold Him with our eyes

A Sleeping Lion

Shh…be very quiet

whisper, don’t shout

there’s a sleeping lion we don’t want to disrupt

he’s stretched out reclined in his den

but with one shout you’ll find him awake again

his eyes will open slowly like a shade

to reveal his large golden eyes glistening beneath his mane

Shhh…be very quiet

whisper, don’t shout

there’s a sleeping lion we don’t want to disrupt

although he might look like a cuddly friend

he’s the king of the jungle and he’ll make sure you know it

with a single pounce he can jump over 10 feet

and there before our eyes the lion will be

our feet are not fast enough to outrun his

and if it was a race, well the lion would win

Shhh…be very quiet

whisper, don’t shout

there’s a sleeping lion we don’t want to disrupt

all around him his pride is sleeping

but with his orders you’ll find them creeping

seeking a prey for their dinner to be

when the lion awakes he’ll be alert and hungry

Shhh…be very quiet

whisper, don’t shout

there’s a sleeping lion we don’t want to disrupt
