Time of Advent

It’s time to light the first purple candle

For the hope that stands firm in our hearts

Like a mustard tree that weathers any storm

Having grown from such a tiny start

 

It’s time to light the second purple candle

A reminder that we should all prepare

For the coming of our God and King

To save us from the Enemy’s lair

 

It’s time to light the one rose candle

Whose only word is; rejoice!

Our mighty King is close at hand

Greet Him with every heart and voice!

 

It’s time to light the final purple candle

That ignites us with a burning love

For our God has come as a little Babe

Sent to us on the wings of a Dove

 

It’s time to light the single white candle

For now it’s Christmas Day!

The Light of the World is born

And the angels come out to play
