A villanelle about the heritage of faith.

This Little Light

This little light is not just mine

This little light is not just mine but a torch passed down from ancient flames

This little light is not just mine but a torch passed down from ancient flames - and God will make it always shine.

It's the light that the Word of God designed

It's the light that the Word of God designed when he spoke the sun into its place.

It's the light that the Word of God designed when he spoke the sun into its place. This little light is not just mine.

It's the light of the Promise to Abram's kind

It's the light of the Promise to Abram's kind scattered across a darkened space

It's the light of the Promise to Abram's kind scattered across a darkened space - and God will make it always shine.

It's the light of God's Word that would not hide

It's the light of God's Word that would not hide behind the veil on Moses' face.

It's the light of God's Word that would not hide behind the veil on Moses' face. This little light is not just mine.

It's a light that death cannot confine

It's a light that death cannot confine But glows like gold from the martyr's face

It's a light that death cannot confine But glows like gold from the martyr's face And God will make it always shine

Behold! the Light of all mankind

Behold! the Light of all mankind that deepest dark can not erase.

This little light is not just mine

This little light is not just mine - and God will make it always shine.

Thank you for reading this poem! It is based on the words of the children's song "This Little Light of Mine" and focuses on the heritage of my Christian faith that goes back thousands of years. The poem draws from various Bible passages, and uses "light" as a metaphor for God's word, God's presence, and the power of an enduring faith.
