Festival of Light

by New Troubadors

(Words by David Spangler; Music by Milenko Matanovic)

LYRICS

This is the Festival, the Festival of Light

Sing for the candles burning brightly through the night

Sing for the light abroad that guides our destiny

Sing for the light of love that builds community

 

Sing for the wise ones, men and women who

Light up our way with visions that are true

Sing for our children who are candles of the dawn

Giving us the promise that our light will carry on

 

This is the festival, the festival of light

Sing for the love that shall make this world ignite

A flame with a beauty that awakes in every heart

Sing for the will that can make that fire start

 

Follow the light that leads within us to the birth

Of love and harmony, and peace for all upon the earth

 

We are the festival, we are the light

We are the candles burning brightly in the night

 

We are the festival, we are the light

We are the candles burning brightly in the night

 

We are the festival, we are the light

We are the candles burning brightly in the night

NOTES

Used many times for the Annual Winter Solstice Service.  Esp the first one in 1994.
