Verse

Light one candle for the Macabe Children

With thanks their light didn't die.

Light one candle for the pain they endured

When their right to exist was de-nied.

Light on candle for the terrible sacrifice

Justice and freedom demand.

Light one candle for the wisdom to know

when the peace makers 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 love and our tears.

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 love and our tears.

(four measures of Em before next verse)

Light one candle for the strength that we need

To never became 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.

Let anger not tear us a-part.

And light one candle to bind us to-gether

With piece 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 love and our tears.

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 love and our tears.

(four measures of Em before next verse)

And what is the memory that's valued so highly

That we keep it alive in the flame?

What's the commitment for those who have died

We cry out they have not died in vain?

We have come this far, always believing

That judgement will somehow prevail.

This is the burden! This is the promise!

and this is why we will not fail!

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 love and our tears.

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 love and our tears.

Don't let the light go out!

Don't let the light go out!

Don't let the light go out!
