Light One Candle...

Eight candlesÖ on the Menorah for Judas the deliverer

LightÖ giving hope in Jesus the deliverer

 

Light One Candle...

for the Maccabee children

give thanks that their light didnít die
Light one candle...

for the pain they endured

when their right to exist was denied!
Light one candle...

for the terrible sacrifice

justice and freedom demand!
Light one candle...

for the wisdom to know

when the Peacemakersí time is at hand!

Donít let the light go out
itís lasted for so many years.
Donít let the light go out
let it shine through our love and our tears!

Light one candle...

for the strength that we need

to never become our own foe!
Light one candle...

for those who are suffering

they withered so long ago!
Light one candle...

for all we believe in

let anger not tear us apart!
Light one candle...

that binds us together

that peace is a song in our heart!

Donít let the light go out
itís lasted for so many years
Donít let the light go out
let it shine through our love and our tears
Donít let the light go out
itís lasted for so many years
Donít let the light go out
let it shine through our love and our tears

What is the memory thatís valued so highly
that we keep it alive in that flame?
Whatís the commitment to those who have died?
They cry out theyíve not died in vain!
We have come this far, always believing
that justice will somehow prevail...
This is the verdict, this is the promise
and this is why we will not fail!

Donít let the light go out
itís lasted for so many years
Donít let the light go out
let it shine through our love and our tears
Donít let the light go out
itís lasted for so many years
Donít let the light go out
let it shine through our love and our tears
Donít let the light go out
Donít let the light go out
Donít let the light go out
