Come Light Our Hearts

I wrote this piece also for our church congregation to sing during Advent. We needed songs before Christmas, not for the celebration but for waiting and longing, as that is so much a part of our life-practice. Like ‘Trinity Song’ this one is more contemplative, with pauses between the lines and just a few repeated sections instead of long verses. I’ve been practicing writing music that helps to make space for us to be still before God.  Waiting is an active happening, and it’s hard work learning to be still.
