Only a couple of songs on this list are directly talking about light, but all of them are sung

at Chanukah, the Jewish festival of lights. Al Hanisim - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6Pn27DmFDA Lyrics translate to: In the window where you can send your glow From my menorah on the newly fallen snow I will set you one little candle On this the first night of Chanukah Light One Candle (by Peter, Paul, and Mary) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MS39-P8oRd0 Maoz Tzur - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_bAqvYedIM This song isnt exactly about light, but it is a Chanukah song about holding strong not giving up. In context, its a prayer to God thanking him for saving the Jews when those around them were wiped out, and recalls the Exodus, the ending of Babylonian captivity, the Jewish holiday of Purim, and lastly about Chanukah. It also expresses hope for rebuilding the Temple. Ner Li - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2u-ruzw3JlY This simple song translates to the following: I have a candle, I have a small thin candle, On Chanukah, my candle I will light On Chanukah, my candle will glow On Chanukah I will sing songs Sevivon, Sov Sov Sov - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xK-6TIYQBYo Dreidel, Spin spin spin! Chanukah is a great holiday Chanukah is a great holiday Dreidel, spin spin spin! A joyous holiday for the nation, A great miracle happened there Mi Ymalel - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmiGBOqlK18 Who can tell of the heroic deeds of Israel? Who can count them? Yes in every generation a hero arises To save the people.

Listen! In those days at this time The Maccabee saved and redeemed But in our days the whole people Israel Will unite, arise, and save. On another note entirely, I think it would be interesting to have the song Light from Next to Normal thrown in there. It toys with the line Let there be light and talks about having faith that tomorrow will be better if we just keep going. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGSDNGLa26k
