week 4

Light the Advent candle one,
Now the waiting has begun,
We have started on our way,
Time to think of Christmas Day.

Candle, candle burning bright,
Shining in the cold winter night.
Candle, candle burning bright,
Fill our hearts with Christmas light.

Light the Advent candle two,
Think of humble shepherds who,
Filled with wonder at the sight
Of the child on Christmas night.

Candle, candle burning bright,
Shining in the cold winter night.
Candle, candle burning bright,
Fill our hearts with Christmas light.
Light the Advent candle three,
Sing of heavenly harmony.
Angels singing "Peace on Earth"
At the blessed Saviour's birth.

Candle, candle burning bright,
Shining in the cold winter night.
Candle, candle burning bright,
Fill our hearts with Christmas light.

Light the Advent candle four,
Sing of Joy forever more,
Christ child in the manger born
Gift of love that Christmas morn!

Candle, candle burning bright,
Shining in the cold winter night.
Candle, candle burning bright,
Fill our hearts with Christmas Light.

Light the Christmas candle now,
Sing of donkey, sheep and cow,
Birthday candles for the King,
Let the Alleluias ring!!


P.S. I cannot take credit for this. It was in a kid's magazine years ago and we used it each Christmas that I taught preschool to do our Advent wreath. It warms your heart to hear little kids join in on the chorus..... Just like Jesus would want it to be...
