The Farallons: Here, the music

Come Light A Candle

(The Farallons)
Words & Music by Tom Richardson

 

Lights glow softly through the fog

Red and green and silver

Away In A Manger floats on the air

And rolls through the town like a river

Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice in the light, and . . .

 

Come light a candle and whisper a prayer

And hope for the best on Christmas

Come light a candle, a blessing of light

A wish for peace on Christmas

 

Beyond nations, borders and flags

Beyond religion and law

Lies the light, pure light

And all the World gives pause, to

Rejoice! Rejoice! And gather the forces of light, so . . .

 

Come light a candle and whisper a prayer

And hope for the best on Christmas

Come light a candle, a blessing of light

A wish for peace on Christmas

 

One light, lights a light that lights a light

That lights the way, all the way, the way home

 

Choirs of angels sing Noel

Into the silent night

Sons and daughters are guided home by

Sofly glowing lights

Rejoice! Rejoice! And bring our children home

 

Come light a candle and sing noel

And wish for peace on Christmas

Come light a candle to light the way

The way home for Christmas
