Pause in Advent

Here is a poem we often say at Advent time, it reminds us to be a light unto the world.

The gift of the light
I thankfully hold
And pass to my neighbour
Its shining gold
That everyone may
Feel its glow,
Receiving and giving
May love and grow.

When all our bothers
Have lit their light
No more shall continue
The darkness of night;
But joyful all men
The message shall hear;
" The Christ draws near!"


  1. That's the challenge, isn't it? The passing on. Thank you x

  2. Yes, that's why we like the poem, ir reminds us especially to try and do that this season ! All the best to you and yours !
