TODAY WE’RE LIGHTING A CANDLE
ON THE ADVENT WREATH BEFORE US.
HOPE BURNING BRIGHT INSIDE US
AS OUR HEARTS WAKE TO THE LIGHT.
GATHERED ‘ROUND OUR MOTHER
WALKING PEACEFULLY TOGETHER.
- Now appears a bright burning star
to proclaim the King is not far.
Let’s make room in our hearts
and prepare the way of the Lord.
- Now our longings hearken to see
the second flame now coming to be.
Like a sweet morning dew
the Messiah will come as a child.
- On this day our joy longs to sing
the good tidings these three lights bring.
And with Mary we wait for the
Emmanuel with joyful hearts.
- Darkness flees and night disappears,
four bright flames now fill us with cheer.
Now His Glory draws near,
let us lift up our hearts to Him.
