Eight Candles

First candle is lit tonight

Shadows fade into light

The miracle of persistence

Of our continued existence

Turn the dreidel, spin, spin, spin

Delighted laughter, grin, grin, grin

Latkes scent the festive table

Hear our children’s excited babble

Golden chocolate gelt held dear

Jelly doughnuts greasy schmear

Gifts are wrapped in shiny papers

Ribbons glow as we light more tapers

Sing the songs of Hanukkah past

G-d is good His wisdom great

Mitzvah met He guides our fate.
