Fifth Night: God's Candle is the Human Soul (Proverbs 20:27)

By Rabbi Naomi Levy, Nashuva, Los Angeles, CA

We are God's candle
We are made to shine
Not just one time in our history
But every day, even today.
God knows the awesome potential
Hidden inside us,
The gift of Chanukah is the light
We must bring
To this precious world.
On this night we remember our power
Mighty and eternal.
Bless us, God, with courage and strength
Health, love and peace.
We are God's candle
May we shine and illuminate the world.  Amen.
