159. A Thousand Candles

1 We light a thousand candles bright
around the earth today,
And all the beams will shine across
the heaven's grand display.

2 Yes over land and sea tonight
the joyful message brings
The birth of Him, our Lord and Christ,
our Savior and our King.

3 Dear brightest star o'er Bethlehem,
O let your precious light
Shine in with hope and peace toward men
in ev'ry home tonight.

4 In all our house so cold and dark
please send your warmth sublime,
the warmth that comes from Jesus' love
this blessed Christmas time.
