THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS!

By the Mighty Mumford

Happy “CHANUCKAH” to you,

Blessing for you if a Jew…

Brave Maccabees

Trusted God Who Sees,

Eight days the prepared oil made it through!

A miracle celebrated by fun,

Only enough oil for one…

Day’s worth burning

Their hearts were yearning

To glorify God–that was done!

The Greeks had fouled the Temple,

Maccabees cleansing their nation’s symbol…

One days-worth prepared

In newly sanctified air,

The answer to God was so simple!

Like in 2nd Kings 4,

The Lord merely added more…

The God of all Creation

Did His own demonstration,

That Israel’s calling was sure!

So a Chanucka (Hanukkah) song,

We joyfully sing all day long…

God in his Heaven

Provides the other seven

Days of oil that the Jews to Him belong!

–Jonathan Caswell
