The Candles
Sång: Jörgen Svantesson,     Text: Patricia Sköld,     Musik: Levi Johansson

1. One Advent candle burning bright
Chasing the darkness from the night
Pointing our thoughts to Him above
Who sent His Son to earth with love.
This Advent, Lord, Let there be Light
To shine into the world´s dark night.
This Advent, Lord, Let there be Light
To shine into the world´s dark night.

2. Two Advent candles shining clear!
They tell us that the time is near,
To judge the world one day He´ll come
With mercy, Lord, thy will be done.
This Advent, Lord, send down one Ray,
To pierce the heart from sin´s dark day.
This Advent, Lord, send down one Ray,
To pierce the heart from sin´s dark day.

3. Three Advent candles sofly glow!
Oh, Morning Star, Thy light we know.
The prohet´s words shine on our way.
Prepare each heart for Thy Great Day!
This Advent, Lord, thoughts turn to Thee,
and where Thou Art all shadows flee.
This Advent, Lord, thoughts turn to Thee,
and where Thou Art all shadows flee.

4. Four Advents candles burning strong
Open our hearts, forgive our wrong
That we may once agin receive
Our Lord and sing that we believe.
This Advent, Lord, let there be Light
To shine into the world´s dark night.
God sent the Light of Lights to earth.
The Virgin Mary gave Him birth.
