Advent candle poem 4

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 fourth one, based on Revelation 21:

~~~

All that’s left to do is wait

The pieces are in place

As the brightness builds and flickering flames

Finally turn to face

The central candle, that longed for light

The hope that is to come

These four shining candles remind us

That the waiting is almost done

The time is near when there’ll be no pain

Or mourning or crying to do

For the creator God who made all things

Is making all things new

The stage is set

And all the preparations have been made

Christ is coming back, we know

Now all that’s left to do is wait
