Light the candles round the world,
   pray the light will never cease
   till the nations of the world
   take each other's hands in peace:
   light the path and show the way,
   every boy and every girl;
   make the light as bright as day,
   light the candles round the world!

1 Make each flame a loving heart,
mother, father, daughter, son:
all it takes is one to start
for the world to be as one.
   Light the candles . . .

2 So I tell you this, my love:
when you see the light appear
it will drive away the dark,
and there'll be nothing left to fear.
   Light the candles . . .
