Just One Candle

From Plank Road Publishing

by Teresa Jennings

If I light just one candle and you light just one, too,
and we pass the flame from wick to wick,
from us to you and you.

And if we keep it going around the world, you'll see
the world is glowing with the light
that came from you and me!


With one candle, just one candle.
Yes, one candle burning bright.
With one candle, just one candle,
we can fill the world with light.

So begins one of the most striking, inspirational works created for young singers. This simple anthem to peace and unity has had a profound effect on many of the schools that have already performed it. For maximum effect, the ending of the work features an orchestrated instrumental sectional (very playable on the piano as well) that is designed as a candle lighting ceremony, symbolically passing the light from one to one until everyone has light. This is the stuff memorable performances are made of. (from Music K-8, Vol. 10, No. 2)
