Faiblit vs Faiblissons

La lumière des bougies ________ après quelque temps.

In this question, isn't there  more than one candle? I chose faiblissons instead of faiblit.

The subject of the sentence is la lumière, which is third person singular. Therefore, it is faiblit, even though more than one candle contribute to the light.
