Hi, Our pianist has the song 'Like a Candle Burning' in NCYC97 songbook and we want to use it in church. We also want to be right with copyright. How can we be legally right with copyright?
I believe the NCYC book allows its use but we also want to be sure.
Can you tell us who the publisher is please?


David, thanks for asking! I dont know where the pianist got the song from, but the 'permission' always says that people are free to use it for worship. The song has three authors and no publisher and you are more than welcome to us it for non-commercial purposes. The NCYC songbook explains that. At least I thought it did. Please sing it, enjoy it, share it. And by the way, yes, I'm the contact person.

I still enjoy playing the song. The words are great and I like both versions. Thanks Craig for giving me the opportunity to blend my music with your words.

Hi Craig
We are a residential aged care service for 40 residents in Camperdown, rural Victoria. During these very challenging times, we have our Pastoral Prayer Group steamed live each week from our Pastoral Carer's home. I type the prayers, hymns and readings in large font for the residents. "Like a candle burning wildly" is one of their favourites, and is also a very special hymn for one of our residents and his wife's memory.
Thank you for your beautiful words and generosity of sharing.
Stay safe.
Kindest Regards Claire


Claire, that is lovely to hear. We moved back to Melbourne a year ago, and certainly understand the current challenges. Peace to your team.
