Title and Lyrics Request Please - Light a candle in the window

Post by hal » Fri Nov 19, 2021 10:01 am

I remember a song that was only sung a few times in primary school, and I have never been able to remember all of the lyrics or find the song... It goes something like this...

When at times you fear to follow on the path that you must tread.... something something something... then it goes into the chorus that goes -

Light a candle in the window, let the night know that you care, light a candle in the window, it may guide the Christ child there...

I really enjoyed singing this song and these fragments of the lyrics and melody have always stuck with me!

Candle in the Window

When the winter day is dying and the wind is blowing wild

Listen for a lonely crying, it may be a wand’ring child

Light a candle in the window, let the night know that you care

Light a candle in the window, it may guide the Christ child there



When at times you fear to follow on the track that you must tread

Friendly promises are hollow for the tests that lie ahead

Light a candle in your window, when your final hope is gone

Light a candle in the window and the child will lead you on



When the world outside is waiting and you can’t give any more

There’s no end to war and hating and you long to close the door

Light a candle in the window, let it shine beyond your pain

Light a candle in the window and the child will come again
