ANNIE DINERMAN: *LISTEN

Now Share Your Light (Chanuka Song)

(ANNIE DINERMAN)
November 4, 2010
Music and Lyrics by Annie Dinerman

Annie's song celebrates the old, old custom of displaying the Chanukah lights in the window.  In times of oppression, it was sometimes too dangerous to show the menorah.  Today, where we have freedom, it's a joy to celebrate openly!  This song is available in SATB arrangement from Hal Leonard.

ONE CANDLE LIGHTS ANOTHER.
IT HAS A JOB TO DO.
AND EVERY NIGHT, IT SHARES WITH ONE MORE
‘TIL THEY ALL DANCE WITH A SPARK.

NOW WE HAVE LIGHT.
SO LET IT SHINE.
WHY LEAVE ANYONE
IN THE DARK?

NOW SHARE YOUR LIGHT,
NOW SHARE YOUR WARM, BRIGHT LIGHT.  (REPEAT)

SO WE ARE LIKE THE SHAMES.
WE HAVE A JOB TO DO:
TO SHARE OUR JOY, TO SHOW THE WHOLE WORLD
HOW WE CAN DANCE WITH A SPARK.

THERE’S ENOUGH LIGHT
TO GO AROUND.
WHY LEAVE ANYONE
IN THE DARK?

NOW SHARE YOUR LIGHT,
NOW SHARE YOUR WARM, BRIGHT LIGHT.  (REPEAT)

MAY DARK DAYS NEVER COME AGAIN.
TONIGHT, WE ARE FREE.
SO PUT THE CANDLES IN THE WINDOW
FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO SEE.

NOW SHARE YOUR LIGHT,
NOW SHARE YOUR WARM, BRIGHT LIGHT.  (REPEAT)
