Candles in Our Windows

Lyrics

verse one:

Shine a light

Shine a light

When hate is at our doorsteps

We lead a peaceful fight

We shine a light

Shine a light

A gift from you and me

For all the world to see

 

chorus:

Candles in our windows

Help our hopes burn bright

Menorahs fill the sweet dreams

Of children tucked in tight

As Christmas bells are ringing

We see a wondrous sight

Candles in our windows

On this holy night

 

verse two:

Shine a light

Shine a light

When fear would keep us silent

We sing with all our might

We shine a light

Shine a light

The glow is here to stay

To chase the dark away

 

(repeat chorus)

 

bridge:

Our faith will last forever

The truth will never die

Our hearts will beat together

Forever, you and I

 

(repeat chorus)

 

Big Ending:

Shine your light (Shine your light)

Shine your light (Shine your light)

When you stick with who you are

Things tend to work out right

Will the world be perfect? (ooh, ooh)

Well, maybe not quite

But ya gotta keep shinin’

Shine your light (Shine your light)

 

Shine your light (Shine your light)

Shine your light (Shine your light)

Let the love beams keep on climbin’

To their highest height

Pick a slice of darkness (ooh, ooh)

And take a big bite

Yeah, ya gotta keep shinin’

Shine your light (Shine your light)…
