Advent candle poem 3

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 third one, based on Revelation 12:


As we await the coming of our king

and darkness battles light to gain control

of hearts and minds, the prize is everything

in this great cosmic struggle for our souls.


The battle rages on but both sides know

there really isn’t much left to decide

The killer blow was dealt so long ago

when God was born a man, and lived and died


So we light these candles, not one, not two, but three

As those ablaze outnumber those unlit

to remind us that Christ’s light has victory

And darkness has no power to conquer it


So now we wait and hear that tale repeated

for Christ has won and darkness is defeated
