When Candles are Lit on Christmas Eve
When candles are lit on Christmas Eve,
I stop and quietly gaze.
As my candle burns with warm soft light,
In the darkness I watch it blaze.
I think of this year; ‘tis quickly passed.
My blessings I can’t ignore.
In the soft still light I thank my Lord;
I want to worship Him more.
Yes, my candle is lit on Christmas Eve;
I love its warm soft light.
And I am reminded once again:
Christ is the Source of delight.
For He is the Light of Christmas Eve,
Come down from God above.
He is the Light of the whole wide world!
Rejoice in His matchless love.
The church’s candles are lit on Christmas Eve;
In this beautiful place we sing
And worship Christ as we focus on Him.
He reigns forever, our coming King!
As we light our candles on Christmas Eve
I rejoice in the Christmas story.
And I’ll trust my Lord each day this year;
I want to live for His glory.
