on the light do the same with the white wires if there is a ground terminal on the light do that as well otherwise just connect the in ing and outgoing ground wires together at the last light just connect the in ing black wire to 1 terminal on the light and then connect the white wire to the other one this method is called wiring in parallel so if one light blows the current can still continue to the other lights to light them up some other things to be aware of most home wiring is either 12 or 14 gauge corresponding to either a 20 or a 15 circuit respectively the maximum design capacity is 80 of that let s say you re using a 20 breaker with 12 gauge wire this circuit should run at no more than 16 s let s assume you re using 100 watt bulbs at 120 volts using watts volts s for 600 watts 120 volts 5 s so this would work fine on a 15 breaker depending on what else is on that circuit.
