Golden Lights for Chanukah
By Janie Jacobson
O GOLDEN lights, shine out anew,
Shine out with radiance bright and true,
While gazing on your golden glow
You speak to me of long ago.
Of patriots who shed their blood        5
For Israel’s cause, for faith, for God.
Did not they sacrifice their all
When clarion-like there came the call?
“Whose on the Lord’s side, come to me,
Lord among the gods, who is like thee?”        10
