Story

It was the second night of Chanukah, December 25, 2016. I lit two beautiful candles and as is tradition, I sat and gazed upon them as they burned. Then a verse came to me. I wrote it down and thought it was a simple chant. Then more lyrics came as I watched the candles burn. When they had finished I took guitar in hand and added the chordal accompaniment. I tweaked the lyrics a bit more as I practiced this new Chanukah gift I had just received. Here it is for you! Please download it, learn it, sing it and share it - and always remember to say my name as the composer each time before you sing it! by RAHEL aka Ann Silverman-Limor

Each one of us is a small Light, together we make a Great Light! 

NES GADOL HAYAH POH - - A great miracle is always here within us! 

PS - - It's a home recording on a simple hand-held Tascam. 

Lyrics

A Chanukah Light

c 2016 Ann R. Silverman-Limor aka Rahel

CHORUS

Look at the candles burning bright – banishing darkness in the night

Through everything we have not lost sight of the Everlasting Guiding Light

 

Verse 1

Come join me now in joyous song – return again to where you belong

Light a candle to be strong then gather round and sing along                                              CHORUS

 

Verse 2

Watch the candles burning slow(ly)– see our faces all a-glow

Gentle winds begin to blow - our spirits dancing to and fro                                                  CHORUS

 

Verse 3

Now is the night turned into day – a still small voice, we hear it say

Whispering softly, “Let us pray” – accompanying us along our way                                    CHORUS

 

Verse 4

Eight nights, eight days we do reflect – eight nights, eight days not to forget

But to defend and to protect with courage, honor and respect                                           CHORUS

 

Verse 5

A Chanukiyah for all to show – G-d’s presence here for all to know

For banishing our greatest foe   – Nes Gadol Haya Poh

NES GADOL HAYAH POH!                                                                                                       CHORUS
