Every Friday night

The candles that we light,

They make the whole world so bright.

In front of the candles I stand,

My eyes covered by my hands.

I think about how my week was,

And I thank Hashem for all that He does.

It’s a time to ask for anything,

For we are standing right in front of the King.
