Light At Least One Candle Ė October 2023

 

Burning Memorial Candles Stock Photo - Download Image Now - Memorial, Candle,  Judaism - iStockPeter, Paul and Mary.Thatís Peter Yarrow, Noel Paul Stookey and the late Mary Travers.When my heart is broken and my soul is crying, I tend to turn to their music to try to regain my emotional center of balance.Other people probably have other artists they turn to, but PPM are what works for me.This week the only words I have to share are theirs.Iíll try to get back to travel topics next week.(Click the photo if youíd prefer to hear it sung instead of just reading it.)

Light one candle for the Maccabee children
With thanks that their light didn't die
Light one candle for the pain they endured
When their right to exist was denied
Light one candle for the terrible sacrifice
Justice and freedom demand
But light one candle for the wisdom to know
When the peacemaker's time is at hand

 

Don't let the light go out!
It's lasted for so many years!
Don't let the light go out!
Let it shine through our hope and our tears.

 

Light one candle for the strength that we need
To never become our own foe
And light one candle for those who are suffering
Pain we learned so long ago
Light one candle for all we believe in
That anger not tear us apart
And light one candle to find us together
With peace as the song in our hearts

 

Don't let the light go out!
It's lasted for so many years!
Don't let the light go out!
Let it shine through our hope and our tears.

 

What is the memory that's valued so highly
That we keep it alive in that flame?
What's the commitment to those who have died
That we cry out they've not died in vain?
We have come this far always believing
That justice would somehow prevail
This is the burden, this is the promise
This is why we will not fail!

 

Don't let the light go out!
Don't let the light go out!
Don't let the light go out!
