The Longest Darkest Night

On this Winter Solstice, I'm posting this simple video of "The Longest Darkest Night". To make it a lyric video, turn on Closed Caption (CC).

Twas the longest darkest night
Coldest oldest hopes seemed lost
Wind blew through our bones
Blackness of the sky was crystal clear

Until a light beyond the din
Became the light and all within

Morning, I walk to you
Evening, life anew

Twas the brightest sight of grace
Might and kindness light the likes unseen
Heat of a breeze in shade
Highest peaks to hearth warmed feet

Yes, the light above the din
Behold the light and all within

Morning, I never knew
Evening, now I do

Yes, the light and all the din
Become the light beyond within

Morning, evening
