Christingle

Christingle

It looks like an orange
This earth on which we stand
And praise God who holds it
In the hollow of His hand.

So Father we thank you
For all that you have done
And all that you have given us
Through the coming of Your Son.

A Candle burning brightly
Can cheer the darkest night
And these candles tell how Jesus
Came to bring a dark world light.

The ribbon round the orange
Reminds us of the cost
How the Shepherd strong and gentle
Gave his life to save the lost.

The four seasons with their harvest
Supply the food we need
And the Spirit gives us a harvest
That can make us rich indeed.

We come with our Christingles
To tell of Jesus' birth
And praise the God who blessed us
By his coming to this earth.
