The time of year has come again when
We celebrate the Festival of Lights
Exchanging gifts for the eight days
Do we have its full meaning in our sights

For those who may not know its meaning
I’ll explain why it’s called by that name
Judah Maccabee’s army was victorious or
Our people’s live would never be the same

For the victory that God had Provided to us
They burned oil offering at the temple alter
But there was only enough to last one day so
They sent a runner for more so as not to falter

The miracle of this dedication came from God
When the runner returned it had lasted eight days
This miracle can also be used as a time of reflection
For the multitudes of people to change their ways

The main candle or shamas is used to light the others
It’s likened to Yeshua who is the light of the world
Who gave his life so that our sins were forgiven
And a direct path to God’s Kingdom was unfurled

Now that I’ve made you aware of the complete story
Confess your sins and profess Yeshua as your Messiah
The benefits far outweigh any questions in your mind
And your soul will be filed with a burning desire
