Last night we attended a Christmas concert at our 11 year old granddaughter’s school. As one of the older children, she walked tall and proud to her seat to play her flute in a medley of Christmas music and we loved it. Soon the stage was filled many smaller children who sang and jingled their bells. One of their songs stuck in my head, and I have hummed it all day. A a simple song, “Light One Candle” by Natalie Sleeth.
Light one candle for hope,
One bright candle for hope.
He brings hope to everyone.
He comes. He comes.
Verses 2, 3 and-4 replace hope with peace, joy, and love.
As we light the candles in our Advent wreaths and welcome His coming, may our song be the same. He comes. He comes.
