Hymn

"Dark of Winter"

#55 in Singing the Living Tradition

Words & Music: Shelley Jackson Denham


Dark of winter, soft and still,

your quiet calm surrounds me.

Let my thoughts go where they will;

ease my mind profoundly.

And then my soul will sing a song,

a blessed song of love eternal.

Gentle darkness, soft and still,

brings your quiet to me.


Darkness, soothe my weary eyes,

that I may see more clearly.

When my heart with sorrow cries,

comfort and caress me.

And then my soul may hear a voice,

a still, small voice of love eternal.

Darkness, when my fears arise,

let your peace flow through me.

Hymn

"Voice Still and Small"

#391 in Singing the Living Tradition

Words & Music: John Corrado


Voice still and small, deep inside all,

I hear you call, singing.

In dark and rain, sorrow and pain,

still you remain singing.

Calming my fears, quenching my tears,

through all the years, singing.

Closing Words (from a post on the website DEEPLY I Felt It


Extinguishing the Chalice

#456 in Singing the Living Tradition

by Elizabeth Selle Jones


We extinguish this flame but not

the light of truth,

the warmth of community,

or the fire of commitment.

These we carry in our hearts until

we are together again


Closing Circle

May faith in the spirit of life

And hope for the community of earth

And love of the light in each other

Be ours now, and in all the days to come.
