On the First Sunday of Advent..,
A candle is burning, a flame warm and bright;
While angels sing blessings from heavínís starry sky
Our hearts we prepare now, for Jesus is nigh.
On the Second Sunday of Advent.., add
A candle is burning, a candle ofPeace;
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.
On the Third Sunday of Advent..., add
A candle is burning, a candle ofJoy;
A candle to welcome brave Maryís new boy.
Our hearts fill with wonder and eyes light and glow
As Joy brightens winter like sunshine on snow.
On the Fourth Sunday of Advent..., add
A candle is burning, a candle ofLove;
A candle to point us to heaven above.
A baby for Christmas, a wonderful birth;
For Jesus is bringing Godís Love to our earth.
On Christmas Eve..., add
We honour Messiah with theChrist-Candleís flame;
Our Christmas Eve candles glad tidings proclaim.
O come, all ye faithful, rejoice on this night
As God comes among us, the Christianís true Light.
