POETRY: The Four Candles Of Advent by Royston Allen

The Four Candles Of Advent by Royston Allen

The candle of HOPE:
Hope for the hopeless and hope for the lost.
No matter the price, whatever the cost.
Jesus has come and was willing to pay
being born as a babe that first Christmas day.

Hope that’s a certainty, hope that is sure.
Though the Earth is shaken we are secure.
Trusting in Jesus and safe in his care.
Knowing that he’s with us and always there.

The candle of PEACE:
Peace, all other peace transcending.
Peace so eternal and unending.
Peace that passes all understanding.
Peace so perfect and undemanding.

Peace lovely peace floods into our soul.
Peace of healing making us whole.
Peace from God, peace from Heaven.
Peace, Jesus whispers deep within.

The candle of JOY:
The candle is burning, its flame so bright
and joy floods the soul to our delight.
For the Light of Life has shone upon us
bringing joy so perfect and marvelous.

Joy unspeakable and full of glory
as we remember the Christmas story.
How the Almighty God had come to Earth
born as a baby by a virgin birth.

The candle of LOVE:
The candle of God’s love burns ever bright,
brightening up even the darkest night.
It turns water into precious wine
and these things of Earth then become divine.

For we’re loved with an everlasting love
coming from God and lifting us above
this Earthly plain to the heights of Heaven
where we can rest in him all forgiven.
