Advent candle poem 1

Through Advent I will be performing a series of poems at Church as we light the candles on our advent crown.

Here are the lyrics for the first one, based on Revelation 1:


Advent is here

The waiting begins

Anticipation feeds our expectation

As the hope of salvation lies in incubation

The heavens sing in exaltation

As all creation waits

for the coming of the creator


[pause to light candle]


So we light this candle

One solitary light

Reminding us of those first words

“let there be light”

And his promise that in our darkness

He is our light

And at the end we’ll need no sun or moon

for he will be our light

As the Alpha and Omega

gives us vision, gives us sight

So this candle is a reminder

As we wait in the night

That the dawn is coming soon

When we will see our creator
