#21 Winter Solstice 12.15.03
Deep in winter’s silent night,
The light of the new year is born
And all of the stars shine with all of their might
To remind us we are one.
(On the recording the words are “To remind us of the dawn.” It has also been sung, “To remind us of our home.”)
With silhouetted branches raised
Into the vast night sky
Firm trees with arms held up in praise
In reverence abide.
Throughout winters long dark night
Life is held deep in the ground
To center, restore and renew
So new growth be Heaven bound.
Into the Winter let’s all go
With faith and hope and love
To receive the wisdom of the night
And the promise of the Sun.
