Santa lights the Hanukkah lights
Eight days in a row,
As Jews sing carols winter nights,
Songs they love and know.
Out of many, one, but one
Need not reduce one's faith.
Some love love, wherever from,
Glad to share the grace.
Remember that identity
Endures through love alone.
Exclusive faith eventually
Turns loving hearts to stone.
Into your well-chosen cup
Now pour a blended soul,
Giving not one blessing up,
Savoring the whole.
