Carry Her Light ~ Ode to Lottie Moon

One December long ago
Was born an ordinary girl
Noone would've guessed this tiny child
Would one day change the world

As she grew she was known
By the pranks and tricks she played
But one day a change came forth
When her heart to Jesus she gave

The Lord placed upon her heart
A drawing need to go
To Tenghchow China as a missionary
His love for them to show

She gave all she had to those there
She gave her very life
What more perfect example of God's love
Could we ever find

Today we honor the memory
Of Charlotte "Lottie" Diggs Moon
With a yearly offering to fund
What our foreign missionaries do

Lottie Moon lit her candle in
China all those years ago
Will you give this Christmas to light yours
Send your candle forth to go

Carry her light and her message of
God, His Son & His Love
Until the day when face to face
We'll meet Lottie in Heaven above.
