ONE: Jesus came to bring peace to our hearts and souls, to all the world that we may live in peace. Let there be peace on earth, and let it be with us.

ONE: We have lit four candles on our way to lighting the Christ Candle.

ONE: Tonight we bring it all together as we light this Christ Candle and celebrate Christ who lightens our lives with hope, love, joy, and peace.
