For Christmas Eve and from out watchnight service tomorrow.


May there be a pause tonight

in the conflicts of the world tonight

a pause that allows the world

to breathe with hope tonight

enough to take a breath tonight

and know God has set free a promise tonight

that the one made all of light

is our salvation tonight


Candle 1


May there be longing tonight

deep enough to unite all longing tonight

from Aleppo to our own neighbourhood

for peace and truth tonight

that feels God’s own longing tonight

as the son falls from heaven tonight

into the vulnerable darkness of earth

and bring it redemption tonight


Candle 2


May there be despair tonight

in the corridors of darkness tonight

worry at the tables of power

concern round the thrones of despots tonight

whose wisest move tonight

is to recognise that can do nothing tonight

to stop the light pouring in

through every crack in their universe tonight


Candle 3


May there be love tonight

fully human and alive tonight

that gives of itself for humanity

and offers a child tonight

born for us all tonight:

a God who takes this personally tonight

and bundles into skin

the gift of Emmanuel tonight


Candle 4
