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
