Joel Raney. Isaiah 9:2,6.

Our number one anthem for 2008 was Joel Raney's "We Wait in Hope: A Candle lighting Ceremony for Advent." This new setting follows the same format. Designed to support the lighting of the Advent candles this includes a choral opening followed by a call and response litany with piano underscore, then a text to be read with the lighting of the candle. As that concludes the choir comes back in with the option of adding the congregation. The candle lighting portion of your service concludes with the provided prayer. There are five variations, one for each candle. Reproducible parts for the congregation and 5 optional handbells are included.
