Stars in spin, all but one
Deep within the night
Stillness dwells in all things
Deep within the night

Infant born, cries of hope
Deep within the night
Wonder prays heaven to earth
Deep within the night

Breaths of steam rising up
Deep within the night
Grateful tears streaming down
Deep within the night

Fragile life comes once more
Deep within the night
Milky Way shines Amen
Deep within the night

(optional last verse)

Wings of awe, carry me
Deep within the night
To the place God is born (love is born)
Deep within the night

Here’s a simple song you can sing together for Advent/Christmas/Solstice/Winter. For me, it captures some of the wonder that I remember feeling as a young boy. Wonder looking up at Orion’s Belt in the December sky. Wonder at the soft singing while holding a candle on Christmas Eve. I still long to feel that wonder all these years later. Wonder and gratitude, perhaps two sides of the same coin.

Thanks to Cooper Sherry of Tacoma WA for creating the lovely piano score.
