I wrote a Hannukah Song

My friend asked me to. So I did:

Let there be light.
Let there be lights.

How long ago
Is too long ago
For us to remember
And understand light?

God wields no hammer
Left it in Canaan
Replaced by a cantor
God shining through man.

Eight nights of light
That shouldn’t have been
Eight nights of light
Let the Temple begin.

Light, lights, light, lights,
God is light
And the right of our sight.

Eight nights of light
Or dark would take us
Eight nights of light
So God would make us.

Lights, light, lights, light,
God is light
And the might of our fight.

CODA

We pray to thee
Almighty.
We light the lights
For thee.

We pray to thee
Almighty.
Eight nights of light
Eternity.

What we need now is vocals and instrumentation. Billions of Christmas songs. Only one Hannukah song, courtesy of Adam Sandler. Who means well. But there really should be a good song. Don’t you think?

Is one good song too much to ask, here and now?
