Christmas 2008

I'll put a candle in the window;
My love for you will always burn.
My soul is there beside you,
Let this candle guide you,
To my heart which for you yearns.

A cold and friendless world surrounds me,
I can't let the stormy darkness pull me down.
Please paint a ray of hope around me,
Circling in the air,
Lighted by a prayer.

I'll put a candle in the window,
This flame inside of me will grow.
I'll keep holding on, I'll make it;
Here's my hand, so take it,
Look for me, reaching out to show,
As sure as rivers flow,
I'll never let you go.
I'll never let you go.

Original song by Al Kasha and Joel Hirschhorn in 1976;
slightly rewritten by Saralyn Smith for Christmas 2008

Precious memories of Christmas Past
Flood my heart tonight--
With sights and sounds of joy that lasts,
Moments of delight.

Remembering how you loved this day
The gifts and Christmas tree,
Knowing you will always stay
Within this heart of me.

Your joyous soul, your shining face
Will always light my way;
Your precious memory I embrace
Forever and always.
