Lighting the Advent Candle

A Candle is burning, a flame warm and bright,
A candle of HOPE in winter’s dark night.
While angels sing blessing from heaven’s starry sky,
Our hearts we prepare now for Jesus is nigh

A candle is burning, a candle of Peace;
A candle to signal that conflict must cease.
For Jesus is coming to show us the way;
A message of Peace humbly laid in the hay.
(tune: Away in a manger)

A candle is burning, a candle of joy.
A candle to welcome brave Mary’s new boy.
Our hearts fill with wonder, and eyes light and glow
as joy brightens winter like sunshine on snow

A candle is burning, a candle of love,
a candle to point us to heaven above,
A baby for Christmas, a wonderful birth,
for Jesus is bringing God’s love to our earth.

We honour Messiah with Christ’s candle flame
Our Christmas Eve candles glad tidings proclaim
O come all ye faithful rejoice in this night
As Christ comes among us, the Christian’s true light
(tune: Away in a manger)
