1 Light the Advent candle, one:
Now the waiting has begun;
we have started on our way,
time to think of Christmas day.

Candle, candle, burning bright,
shining in the cold winter night;
candle, candle, burning bright,
fill our hearts with Christmas light.

2 Light the Advent candle, two:
Think of humble shepherds, who
filled with wonder at the sight
of the child of Christmas night. [Refrain]

3 Light the Advent candle, three:
Think of heavenly harmony;
angels singing "Peace on earth"
at the blessed Savior's birth. [Refrain]

4 Light the Advent candle, four:
Think of joy forevermore;
Christ Child in a stable born,
gift of love that Christmas morn. [Refrain]

5 Light the Christmas candles, now:
Sing of donkey, sheep, and cow;
birthday candles for the King,
let the alleluias ring. [Refrain]
