silent night (troiku)

before the bell tolls
sparrows seeking refuge
flurries trail

before the bell tolls
carollers sing
Silent Night

sparrows seeking refuge
in the heart of His home
a King is born

flurries trail
clouds make way for Polaris
guiding hope

NIGHT OF SILENCE

by Daniel Kantor

1. Cold are the people, Winter of life, We tremble in shadows this cold endless night, Frozen in the snow lie roses sleeping, Flowers that will echo the sunrise, Fire of hope is our only warmth, Weary, its flame will be dying soon.

2. Voice in the distance, call in the night, On wind you enfold us you speak of the light, Gentle on the ear you whisper softly, Rumors of a dawn so embracing, Breathless love awaits darkened souls, Soon will we know of the morning.

3. Spirit among us, Shine like the star, Your light that guides shepherds and kings from afar, Shimmer in the sky so empty, lonely, Rising in the warmth of your Son’s love, Star unknowing of night and day, Spirit we wait for your loving Son.
