Candle Light, Sacred Light

Advent Hymn – Candle Light, Sacred Light – Tune – Silent Night

Candle light, sacred light.

Mystery flames, burning bright

We are waiting for Jesus’ new birth.

Shine his hope over all of the earth.

Thanks for the gift of hope, thanks for the gift of hope.

 

Candle light, sacred light.

Mystery flames, burning bright

We are waiting for Jesus’ new birth.

Shine his peace over all of the earth

Thanks for the gift of peace, thanks for the gift of peace.

 

Candle light, sacred light.

Mystery flames, burning bright

We are waiting for Jesus’ new birth.

Shine his joy over all of the earth.

Thanks for the gift of joy, thanks for the gift of joy.

 

Candle light, sacred light.

Mystery flames, burning bright

We are waiting for Jesus’ new birth.

Shine his love over all of the earth.

Thanks for the gift of love, thanks for the gift of love.

 

Candle light, sacred light.

Mystery flames, burning bright

Hope, joy and peace are the gifts of this night.

Love poured out over all within sight.

Shine your light in our world; shine your light in our world
