Lyrics
Chorus
Christmas is coming 
the Church is glad to sing 
and let the advent candles 
brightly burn in a ring. 
 
Verse 1
The first is for God's promise 
to put the wrong things right, 
and bring to earth's darkness 
the hope of love and light. 
 
Chorus
Christmas is coming 
the Church is glad to sing 
and let the advent candles 
brightly burn in a ring. 
 
Verse 2
The second is for the Prophet 
Who said that Christ would come. 
With good news for many 
And angry words for some.  
 
Chorus
Christmas is coming 
the Church is glad to sing 
and let the advent candles 
brightly burn in a ring. 
 
Verse 3
The third is for the Baptist, 
Who cried ‘Prepare the way, 
be ready for Jesus, 
Both now and every day’  
 
Chorus
Christmas is coming 
the Church is glad to sing 
and let the advent candles 
brightly burn in a ring. 
 
Verse 4
The fourth is for the virgin, 
Who mothered God’s own Son, 
And sang how God’s justice 
Was meant for everyone.  
 
Chorus
Christmas is coming 
the Church is glad to sing 
and let the advent candles 
brightly burn in a ring. 
 
Verse 5
At last we light the candle, 
Kept new for Christmas Day, 
This shines bright for Jesus, 
New born, and here to stay. 
 
Chorus
Christ is among us 
the candles in a ring 
remind us that our saviour 
will light up everything.
