LIGHT ONE CANDLE

 

Light one candle for the Maccabee children

With thanks that their

Light didn’t die.

Light one candle for the

pain they endured,

When their right to exist

was denied.

Light one candle for the terrible sacrifice

Justice and freedom demand.

But light one candle for the wisdom to know

When the peacemakers

time is at hand.

Chorus

Don’t let the light go out.

It’s lasted for so many years.

Don’t let the light go out,

let it shine through our love and our tears.

Light one candle for the strength that we need to never become our own foe.

Light one candle for those who are suffering the pain we learned so long ago.

Light one candle for all we believe in. Let anger not tear us apart.

And light one candle to bind us together with peace as the song in our hearts.

Chorus

What is the memory thats valued so highly, that we keep it alive in that flame?

What’s the commitment to those who have died, that we cry out they’ve not died in vain?

We have come this far always believing that justice will somehow prevail

This is our burden, this is our promise, and this is why we will not fail.

Chorus

Don’t let the light go out (x3)
