As the darkness gathers round us,
As the shadows lengthen, grow;
As the sun of winter weakens,
In the days of rain, wind, snow;
We will look to see the signs of light,
We will wait for truth to show.

As the light grows short, nights darken,
As our lives grow frail and cold,
As the world draws pale and weaker
In a time when fear takes hold;
We will look to hear the ancient promised word,
We will wait for what was told.

Verses 3-4 follow

Tune: Picardy 8 7 8 7 8 7
