I had meant to post that it was 10 years ago the weekend before last that rachel millen died. there was a gathering of friends in tassie, a kind of reunion I suppose. I didn't get to go, but as I was leading worship the following day here in adelaide, I included "like a candle" in the service, as the gospel was about transfiguration and that seemed to fit well.
Thanks to Tim and Roger for contributing the tune. I still like the original version which is on "The Belonging Kit" CD as well.
Like a candle burning wildly
raging soft against the night
spark that leaps to clear the shadows
sending warm, disturbing light
we are called to live the passion
hope stands strong against all pain
for its only in the burning
that the candle shows its flame
lyrics by me
once again for rachel
