Come Lord of us all,
stir up the darkness.
We light just one candle
to keep us awake.

Come Lord of nature,
wise and just ruler.
The light of two candles
shows us how to live.

Come Lord of our life.
Deserts are greening.
The light of three candles
show that you are near.

Come Son of David,
he who was promised.
By four candles' brightness
the true king will come.
