When we light the Chanukah menorah there is a lesson we can contemplate and remember. The Jewish men who fought against the Greeks in those times gave their all to see through the lies of the surrounding Greek philosophy and preserve the truth of the Torah. And because of their self-sacrifice they merited a miracle which revealed to them that they were given divine assistance. Future generations now have this lesson inside of us that even in the darkest of times we can also receive divine assistance when we put in our effort to see through the lies around us and seek to find the truth.

The Lesson of the Flame

Sacrifice and dedication saved us from assimilation
Went to war with a stronger nation and saw heavenly salvation

The lesson of the flame has always been the same truth never dies it’s always inside you
When you feel you don’t have the might the lesson of the flame will get you through the night

Now’s the time bond with tradition take a moment regenerate your mission
There’s a place in your disposition that’s awaiting a transition

The lesson of the flame has always been the same truth never dies it’s always inside you
When you feel you don’t have the might the lesson of the flame will get you through the night

There’s a place inside beyond space and time you can only find by the candlelight

Don’t you know it’s the general condition all exposed to the airs of wrong ambition
So light the lamp and with some contemplation let the candle be your inspiration

The lesson of the flame has always been the same truth never dies it’s always inside you
When you feel you don’t have the might the lesson of the flame will get you through the night
The lesson of the flame has always been the same find it in your heart and put it in your brain
When the night conceals the day a little bit of light can push a lot of dark away
