Fireflies (The Persecuted Church)

Have you heard of the firefly?
It shines in the darkness and lights up the sky
People capture them to contain their light
And to gaze upon that wondrous sight
So it is with the saints of Christ
They’re pursued and captured because of their light
And if God wills, it just might be
That their captors will be changed
By the light that they see
And with faces aglow with the radiant light
They become, themselves, like the firefly
