Light the first candle. Say the blessing above while kindling subsequent candles. Below is a reminder of all of the ways YAHUVEH delivered our Jewish ancestors as written in the Holy Scriptures.
These lights we kindle upon the miracles, the wonders, the salvation, through YAHUSHUA and His gift at calvary, and the battles which You performed for our forefathers in those days at this season through Your holy priests. During all eight days of Chanukah these lights are sacred, and we are not permitted to make ordinary use of them, but only to look at them in order to express thanks and praise to Your great Name for Your miracles, Your wonders and Your salvation. 
O mighty stronghold of my salvation, YAHUSHUA,

to praise You is a delight.

Restore my House of Prayer

and there we will bring a thanksgiving offering.

When You will have prepared the slaughter

for the blaspheming foe,

Then I shall complete with a song of hymn

the dedication of the altar.

II.
My soul had been sated with troubles,

my strength has been consumed with grief.

They had embittered my life with hardship,

with the calf-like kingdom's bondage.

But with His great power

He brought forth the treasured ones,

Pharaoh's army and all his offspring

went down like a stone into the deep.

III.
To the holy abode of His Word He brought me.

But there, too, I had no rest

And an oppressor came and exiled me.

For I had served Aliens,

And had drunk benumbing wine.

Scarcely had I departed

At Babylon's end Zerubabel came.

At the end of seventy years I was saved.

IV.
To sever the towering cypress

sought the Aggagite, son of Hammedatha,

But it became [a snare and] a stumbling block to him

and his arrogance was stilled.

The head of the Benjaminite You lifted

and the enemy, his name You obliterated

His numerous progeny - his possessions -

on the gallows You Hanged.

V.
Greeks gathered against me

then in Hasmonean days.

They breached the walls of my towers

and they defiled all the oils;

And from the one remnant of the flasks

a miracle was wrought for the roses.

Men of insight - eight days

established for song and jubilation.

VI.
Bare Your holy arm, YAHUVEH,

and hasten the End for salvation -

Avenge the vengeance of Your servants' blood

from the wicked nation.

For the triumph is too long delayed for us,

and there is no end to days of evil,

Repel the evil one in the nethermost shadow

and establish for us the seven shepherds.
Psalm 90:17 May the favor of YAHUVEH, in the Name of YAHUSHUA, rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us--yes, establish the work of our hands for Your Glory.

Psalm 91:1-16 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of YAHUVEH, "You are my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." Surely You will save me from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence. You will cover me with your feathers, and under Your wings I will find refuge; Your faithfulness will be my shield and rampart. I will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, Nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at my side, ten thousand at my right hand, but it will not come near me. I will only observe with my eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If I make the Most High my dwelling--even YAHUVEH, who is my refuge-- Then no harm will befall me, no disaster will come near my tent. For YAHUVEH will command his angels concerning me to guard me in all your ways; They will lift me up in their hands, so that I will not strike my foot against a stone. I will tread upon the lion and the cobra; I will trample the great lion and the serpent. "Because You love me," says YAHUVEH, "I will rescue you; I will protect you, for you acknowledge my Name. You will call upon me, and I will answer you; I will be with you in trouble, I will deliver you and honor you. With long life will I satisfy you and show you my salvation." 

Psalm 67:1-8 
{For the director of music. With stringed instruments. A psalm. A song.} May YAHUVEH be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us, <Selah> That your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, O' YAHUVEH; may all the peoples praise you. May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples justly and guide the nations of the earth. <Selah> May the peoples praise you, O' God; may all the peoples praise you. Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God, will bless us. YAHUVEH will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear him.

We beg You! With the strength of Your right hand's greatness, untie the bundled sins. Accept the prayer of Your nation; strengthen us, purify us, O' awesome YAHUVEH. Please O' awesome YAHUVEH - those who foster Your Oneness, guard them like the apple of an eye. Bless them, purify them, show them pity, may Your righteousness always recompense them. Powerful YAHUVEH, with Your abundant goodness guide Your congregation. In the Name of YAHUSHUA, turn to Your nation, which proclaims Your holiness. Accept our prayer and hear our cry, O' Knower of all mysteries..

Blessed be the Name of YAHUVEH'S glorious Kingdom forever and ever.

Psalm 30:1-13
{A psalm. A song. For the dedication of the temple. Of David.} I will exalt you, O' YAHUVEH, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me. O' YAHUVEH my God, I called to you for help and you healed me. O' YAHUVEH, you brought me up from the grave; you spared me from going down into the pit. Sing to YAHUVEH, you saints of his; praise his Holy Name. For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. When I felt secure, I said, "I will never be shaken." O' YAHUVEH, when you favored me, you made my mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed. To you, O' YAHUVEH, I called; to YAHUVEH I cried for mercy: "What gain is there in my destruction, in my going down into the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness? Hear, O' YAHUVEH, and be merciful to me; O' YAHUVEH, be my help." You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, That my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O' YAHUVEH my God, I will give you thanks forever.

Psalm 133:1-3
{A song of ascents. Of David.} How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron's beard, down upon the collar of his robes. It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there YAHUVEH bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.

Psalm 33:1-22
Sing joyfully to YAHUVEH, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him. Praise YAHUVEH with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. For the word of YAHUVEH is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. YAHUVEH loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. By the word of God were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth. He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses. Let all the earth fear YAHUVEH; let all the people of the world revere him. For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm. YAHUVEH foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples. But the plans of YAHUVEH stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. Blessed is the nation whose YAHUVEH is God, the people he chose for his inheritance. From heaven YAHUVEH looks down and sees all mankind; From his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth-- He who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do. No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength. A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save. But the eyes of YAHUVEH are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, To deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. We wait in hope for YAHUVEH; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his Holy Name. May your unfailing love rest upon us, O' YAHUVEH, even as we put our hope in you

Scripture Readings for Hanukkah - First Night

Numbers 7:1-17 
When Moses finished setting up the tabernacle, he anointed it and consecrated it and all its furnishings. He also anointed and consecrated the altar and all its utensils. Then the leaders of Israel, the heads of families who were the tribal leaders in charge of those who were counted, made offerings. They brought as their gifts before YAHUVEH six covered carts and twelve oxen--an ox from each leader and a cart from every two. These they presented before the tabernacle.

YAHUVEH said to Moses, "Accept these from them, that they may be used in the work at the Tent of Meeting. Give them to the Levites as each man's work requires." So Moses took the carts and oxen and gave them to the Levites. He gave two carts and four oxen to the Gershonites, as their work required, And he gave four carts and eight oxen to the Merarites, as their work required. They were all under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron, the priest. But Moses did not give any to the Kohathites, because they were to carry on their shoulders the holy things, for which they were responsible.

When the altar was anointed, the leaders brought their offerings for its dedication and presented them before the altar. For YAHUVEH had said to Moses, "Each day one leader is to bring his offering for the dedication of the altar." The one who brought his offering on the first day was Nahshon son of Amminadab of the tribe of Judah. His offering was one silver plate weighing a hundred and thirty shekels, and one silver sprinkling bowl weighing seventy shekels, both according to the sanctuary shekel, each filled with fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering; One gold dish weighing ten shekels, filled with incense; One young bull, one ram and one male lamb a year old, for a burnt offering; One male goat for a sin offering; And two oxen, five rams, five male goats and five male lambs a year old, to be sacrificed as a fellowship offering. This was the offering of Nahshon son of Amminadab.

Genesis 1:2-5
Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of YAH was hovering over the waters. And YAHUVEH said, "Let there be light," and there was light. YAHUVEH saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. YAHUVEH called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.

Genesis 1:14-18
And YAHUVEH said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, And let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth." And it was so. YAHUVEH made two great lights--the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. YAHUVEH set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth, To govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And YAHUVEH saw that it was good.

John 1:1-13
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his Name, he gave the right to become children of God-- Children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.
