One by One

One by one the lights went out
and all was covered in darkness.
one by one they fell to despair,
till all hope was extinguished.

evil grew, spreading its wings
in the blackness of the night.
evil grew, covering the earth,
not one would stand and fight.

then One came who held his ground,
the smallest One, the least of all.
then One came who held a light,
a tiny flame, a single glow.

the tiny flame, the single glow
was but a flicker in the night.
the tiny flame, though held up high
was just a single light.


where there is Light the darkness flees,
no evil can abound.
where there is Light the shadows cease,
and goodness can be found.
