The Candlelight Song

In the "Walk to Emmaus" tradition, the community often holds a "Candlelight" ceremony, in which the community serenades the participants of a Walk. In Emmaus it is usually done on Saturday night, instead of the Cursillo tradition of Mañanitas.
Brian Groover has composed a song specially for Candlelight and similar ceremonies. He owns the copyright, but allows communities to copy and use it provided that it is used in unmodified form. He also can provide a printed copy of the music if you send him a SASE.

See how many candles burning ?
Hear the love in our hearts yearning ?
We are here to love you,
Just to sing a song of love or two.

Here's a gift of peace and mercy;
All we are, and offered freely;
Fresh from Christ, our new birth.
We love you because He loved us first.

With His love we now must leave you;
Peace be yours that He can bring you.
Sleep tonight in Jesus,
Rest in all His love we sing of.

See how many candles burning ?
Hear the love in our hearts yearing ?
We are here to love you,
Just to sing a song of love or two.

Peace be yours until we sing anew.
