Be aware of fire risk!
When you do this, it is at your own risk!
Do not go away from a lit candle!
Always supervise your children, when they are around a lit candle!
YOUR SCRIPTURE CANDLE LIGHTS THE WAY
The scriptures tell the story of Jesus Christ, our King.
Born in a lonely stable while angels, they did sing.
Let's not forget this season and the Savior of us all,
Gather loved ones all around you,
whether big, or small.
And while your candle's burning,
read the scriptures every night,
And let them help remind you of God's grace, love, and light.
Just keep the candle burning while scriptures you do read,
Then blow it out when finished,
let parents take the lead.
Start reading with these scriptures 'til Christmas time is past,
Continue daily reading and make the practice last.
Here are the scriptures that go with the candle and poem.
