Advent Wreath Hymn

 

Tune: Away in a Manger

 

On the First Sunday of Advent..,

A candle is burning, a flame warm and bright;
A candle of
Hope in Decemberís dark night.
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 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.

 

On the Third Sunday of Advent..., add

A candle is burning, a candle of Joy;
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 of Love;
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 the Christ-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.
