  1. A Chanuka and Christmas Carol


    Chanukah and Christmas – Let's celebrate the light
    The Grace of God Eternal dispels the dark of night.

    Daniel had prophesied the Desolation
    False idols in the temple: 'twas the Desecration
    Little lamp oil remained for the altar dedication
    So God provided the light to this and every earthly nation.

    Chanukah and Christmas – Let's celebrate the light
    The Grace of the Father dispels the dark of night.

    NesGadolHayahSham – A Great Miracle Happened there
    The star of Bethlehem lit the way to a little manger where
    The miracle of Jesus birth in the creche of a mare.
    Hosanna, Alleluia, the Angel Chorus does declare.

    Chanukah and Christmas – Let's celebrate the light
    The Light of the Messiah dispels the dark of night.

    At the time of Chanukah on the porch of Solomon
    The Messiah was revealed, Jesus is the Father's son.
    Sheep follow the shepherd and unto him ye run,
    And recognize the works which show that He and God are one.

    Chanukah and Christmas – Let's celebrate the light
    The Light of the Good Shepherd dispels the dark of night.

    The rededication lacked the glory of the Ark
    But when Immanuel came, He dispelled the dark.
    So worship not in a building cold and stark.
    But in Spirit and in Truth – Jesus the eternal bulwark.

    Chanukah and Christmas – Let's celebrate the light
    The Light of the Holy Spirit dispels the dark of night.

    The eternal sacrifice, His body: temple stones and bricks.
    Like the shammus which lights all menorrah wicks.
    Jesus, the servant-king, lights our spirit-candle sticks
    That we may be His beacons, His light our hearts affix.

    Chanukah and Christmas – Let's celebrate the light
    The Light of the World dispels the dark of night.

    Based on Daniel 8: 11 9: 27 11: 31 12: 11 and John 10: 23
