Encouraged by Snowflake’s holiday album project, I wrote this Chanukah-inspired song about the power of light (and all that implies) to see one through adversity. While it borrows liberally from the story of Chanukah, it is my intention that the lyric transcends religious and cultural boundaries just as light makes no distinction about what it illuminates.

Separate files for each vocal part are also uploaded for easier mixing, slicing, dicing, effecting, correcting, etc. Also included, are two reference tracks: guitar w/vocals and guitar alone.

The Light

The light, the light, the light shines

It was your intention to destroy us
Your intention to oppress
You didn’t expect that we would be blessed to find our way through the darkness

The light, the light, the light shines

This is what we fight for
This is what we live for
The brightness blinds our enemies eyes
This is how we survive

The light

Offerings and hope and faith
Solace in the shadows illuminate for yet another day, another day

The light shines
The light shines
The light
