four candels for Christmas
one candel for faith
one candel for trust
one candel for love
one candel for hope

four candels for Christmas
the flaims shine brite
wind starts to blowe

faith's flaime dies away
extinguwishd by the wind

trust was to week
extinguwishd by the wind

love was to littel
extinguwishd by the wind

only hope burns on
and as the wind dies away
shaires its fire
so faith, trust and love
start breething again

This is a beautiful analogy...  even when faith, trust, and love flicker out... we can still have hope that the flames will be rekindled.  Again, beautiful.  -Bob
