A Carol for the Longest Night

Silent Night, Holy Night,
here we long for your Light.
Here your Presence is achingly near.
Here your Love gently touches our fear.
May we welcome You now.
May we welcome You now.

Silent Night, Holy Night,
here we long for your Light.
May our darkness be softened with grace.
May our grief be transformed by your face.
Here you offer us Love.
Here you offer us Love

Silent Night, Holy Night,
here we long for your Light
Draw us now in this moment to You
In our grief and our loss make us new
Birth your life in our heart
Birth your life in our heart

Tune: Stille Nacht  (Silent Night)
