Advent Wreath Song: Hope is a Light


Here’s another simple (and easy to learn) advent candle-lighting song for Advent.  It comes from Dan Damon’s collection, Fields of Mercy. You can find a free PDF of the music on Hope Publishing’s Online Hymnody website here: http://www.hopepublishing.com/media/pdf/hset/hs_2531.pdf

If you use the song in worship, be sure to report it on your CCLI license.

Hope Is a Light

Hope is a light,
hope is a light.
Hope is a light to show the way,
hope is a light to show the way.
Light the candle of hope,
light the candle of hope.

Peace is a prayer,
peace is a prayer.
Peace is a prayer that starts with me,
peace is a prayer that starts with me.
Light the candle of peace,
light the candle of peace.

Joy is a song,
joy is a song.
Joy is a song for all to sing,
joy is a song for all to sing.
Light the candle of joy,
light the candle of joy.

Love is a gift,
love is a gift.
Love is a gift our hearts can give,
love is a gift our hearts can give.
Light the candle of love,
light the candle of love.

Jesus is born,
Jesus is born.
Jesus is born in us today,
Jesus is born in us today:
Christ, the light of the world,
Christ, the light of the world.
