ADVENT CANDLES
 
 
 
 
                   Now we'll light the candles,
                          Candles in a ring;
                 So that they will light the way
                        For our coming King.
                  Ev'ry year they help us count
                        By their bright array
                And remember why Christ came
                      On that Christmas Day!

                    Thinking of God's promise
                        As we light the first:
                   Darkness He will overthrow
                         For our God is just!
                       Jesus is our only light
                     And through Him we pray
                And remember why Christ came
                      On that Christmas Day!

                     Prophets with a message
                    Of how Christ would come
                    To redeem a fallen world;
                        Calling us back home.
                Guide us by this candle's flame;
                         May we never stray
                 But remember why Christ came
                      On that Christmas Day!

                    John's voice in the desert
                   Said: "Christ's way prepare;
            Crooked roads must be made straight,
                  Or God's wrath you'll share!"
                    Help us to repent our sins;
                          Light for us a way
                 To remember why Christ came
                      On that Christmas Day!

                        Mary was so willing;
                      Bearing God's own Son:
                       Only by this Gift to us
                        Was our pardon won.
               These four candles help us think
                     Of debts we can't repay
                And remember why Christ came
                      On that Christmas Day!
