wiring a new light?


I am replacing a light bar in the bathroom.. took down old light and bought new light., it has no instructions available and in the wooden bar it has 3 individual lights with 2 wires in it. the three light wires are not long enough to reach any light. So needs jumpers to connect which mean it will have 6 wires connceted to 2 coming in 1 black and 1 white.. any suggestions?

Just make up some jumpers with whatever wire size is existing in the wall.
