Silent Night, Holy Night
Here we long for your Light
Here your Presence is achingly near
Here your Love gently touches our fear 
Hold our tears in your heart
Hold our tears in your heart

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
Seed your hope in our hearts
Seed your hope in our hearts

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 hearts
Birth your life in our hearts
