Cubs with candles and letters recite the following:

H - Stands for Hannah, courageous and true, Who would not yield, so her sons they slew.

A - Stands for Antiochus, Syrian King, Who tried from Judea, Greek worship to bring.

N - Stands for "NES", That wonder so great, When oil in the cruse, stead of one day burned eight.

U - Is for unfurling the Maccabee banner. By Judas who fought in so valiant a manner.

K - Is for kindling of light and of hope, For those who in sorrow of darkness now grope.

K - Is for keepsake of candles so bright. That father, with "Brochos" will light every night.

A - Stands for all, living far and wide, Who tonight are glowing with true Jewish pride.

H - Stands for Hebrew, our language so old, In which the story of Hanukkah is told.
