Make merry the cheer

November 27, 2015


Something from the service of Words and Music for Advent on Sunday evening at 6.30. Lots more over the weekend.


Make merry the cheer

for solstice turns the year


With noise

beat back the shadows,

with candles

light the gloom

Let not the darkness win the day

but with the joy of expectation

and trust in the birth of light

face advent bravely

within the faith of the prophets

and their ancient promise of renewal:


the child is born

into this darkness


into the greater weight of winter

and the onslaught of shadows

hope casts a curve

and it is enough

to let the light get in


so make merry the time

bring on the cheer

it is to defeat of the darkness

with the confidence of promise

and the daring faith

of those who know

this child

is made of promise.
