Light The Festive Candles – Aileen Lucia Fisher

Menorah and CandlesLight the first of eight tonight –
the farthest candle to the right.

Light the first and second, too,
when tomorrow’s day is through.

Then light three, and then light four –
every dusk one candle more

Till all eight burn bright and high,
honoring a day gone by

When the Temple was restored,
rescued from the Syrian lord,

And an eight – day feast proclaimed –
The Festival of Lights – well named

To celebrate the joyous day
when we regained the right to pray
to our one God in our own way.
