Songs We Sing: Evening Lamps Are Lit

Squeezebox is a place for our Song Leaders, as well as congregants, to learn the songs we sing at St. Lydia’s.


Evening Lamps Are Lit is a piece by our friend, Ana Hernandez, that can be found in the volume, Music By Heart. We sing it during the summer months as a Lamp Lighting Song.  It’s great with shruti box and drum.

The words to the main melody are…
Evening lamps are lit
Firelight all around
Evening lamps are lit
Praise and thanksgiving sound

There’s also a rhythmic countermelody that goes together with the main melody. The words are:
Light of the World, of endless blessing
Sun of our night, lamp of our days
Light of the World, of endless blessing
We raise our hearts in light and praise
