Its lyrics cause us to take a moment and think about whether our hearts, attitudes, and lives are truly committed to the Lord or if we are obliviously dozing away.

Every poignant verse and chorus reflects the song's sincere message, encouraging us all to preserve the flame of faith and devotion, and, most importantly, our spiritual readiness, burning brightly. In essence, 'Midnight Oil' urges every listener to keep their 'Midnight Oil' - that intimate connection with God - well-stocked and constantly burning.
