These special moments shared  with you , seem much too short , and all too few .

  So on my knees I sink  to pray , to thank our Lordfor this blessed day .

In Ivory White , with childs love , you pledge yourself to Him above ,

who touches you , and warms  your heart , and lets you feel  his boundless love.

You hold your flickering candle there , pull back your vail over your hair ,

and say the prayers you've learned so well . How proud we are to watch you there.

You pledge your soul forevermore to only he , who keeps you pure ,

rejecting he who deals in lies , who  seeks to blind  you , from the door .

In  Christ ,  we find the only one , who walked among us as a son ,

who gave his life that we might live . With  all we do , he still forgives .

In this long life you're gonna'  fall , but he'll be there , if you but call ,

to catch you , guide  and  comfort too , through all life's trials ,  stalking  you .

He'll light the way in pitch of night .  Just seek his  torch . It  glows so bright  !

Recall the candle you now hold .  Believe the greatest story told .

It is NOT an illusion.

Trust in him my precious one , through all your days , until they're done .

for if you keep him in your heart , you'll dwell with him , when Kingdom comes !
