(Light all four candles- AND the Christ Candle!)
Hope glimmers in the darkness.
Love’s glow will never cease.
Hearts radiate with Joy anew.
Each day is bright with peace.
You have come, O Dawn of Light
and darkness fades forever.
YOU are the One who gives this hope,
love, joy, and peace to treasure.
I stand in awe before you,
yet know you are beside, within
my deepest soul, my inner self-
loving all I shall be and have been.
Your light surrounds, imbues me;
I feel your presence near,
And so I want to dearly say,
“Thank you for coming here.”
