In the beginning
the world was in darkness
God speaking, the Spirit moving
let there be light
we remember the miracle
God’s wondrous act.

The temple in darkness
desecrated, defiled,
a small band of warriors,
the victory won,
we remember the miracle
God’s wondrous act.

Chanting the blessings
with every candle we light,
every day that goes by,
a celebration of light,
we remember the miracle
God’s wondrous act.

Mankind in darkness,
needy and helpless,
Son of God the lone warrior
the victory won,
we remember the miracle
God’s wondrous act.

Bringing light to the darkness
God’s plan all along.
With every candle we light
every day that goes by
we remember these miracles
God’s wondrous acts.
