Happy Advent

/ 30 November 2008

The new year begins tonight, and the waiting in the darknessā€¦ we lit one candle, read the texts, and sang some songs. Here is a lovely advent hymn from ChoralGirl:

Dark is the night, quiet and cold;
all earth waits for Love's bright dawn.
Send us your light, promised of old:
oh, come, Lord Jesus, come!

Whisper of wind, blow through the trees:
heaven's breath, meet flesh and bone!
Stir us again, life-giving Breeze:
oh, come, Lord Jesus, come!

Rupture the night! Sing in the stars,
Radiant One, make us your home!
Bathe us in light; blaze in our hearts:
oh, come, Lord Jesus, come!

Oh, come, Lord Jesus, come!

She suggests singing it to the tune STILLWATERS.
