Advent means "coming" or "arrival," and is a time to prepare our hearts and minds for the coming of Christ as we celebrate His birth at Christmas–and anticipate His return. Advent includes the four Sundays preceding Christmas. During this time, churches all over the world will be illuminated as they light a candle on each of these Sundays. Typically, the four candles symbolize Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace–and are lit in that order.

Some churches use candles with slightly different meanings or light them in a different order, but we will focus on the topic of Peace as symbolized by the "Angel's Candle." This candle reminds us of the angel that announced Christ's birth to the shepherds. Accompanied by a heavenly host, the angel delivered the message, "...and on earth peace, good will toward men."

These beautiful songs will be a perfect addition to any worship service throughout the Christmas season, so be sure to check them out!
