Advent Candles hymn 2016

A candle we light,
a candle we light,
a candle we light,
proclaiming Jesus comes to put things right.

Come on and wake up, the day is coming!
The power of darkness is soon succumbing,
for Jesus takes what is unbecoming
and transforms it by his love.

A candle we light…

It’s time to make up with every neighbour,
let no suspicion divide us ever,
for Jesus comes as our Lord and Saviour
so let’s live in harmony.

A candle we light…

So let’s wait up, for he’s on his way now!
We’re looking forward to that great Day now.
For Jesus tells us to watch and pray, now
let’s be patient, let’s be strong.

A candle we light…

It’s time to listen to the Christmas story!
The lights all glisten and the choir sings ‘glory’,
For Jesus brings to every territory
news of God’s amazing love!

A candle we light…

Tune: Feliz Navidad
For use progressively during Advent, adding a verse each Sunday. Verses 1 to 3 are loosely based on the Epistle readings for the first three Sundays of Advent (Revised Common Lectionary Year A).
