O Holy Darkness, to tune of "O Little Town of Bethlehem" by Jann Aldredge-Clanton

to the tune of “O Little Town of Bethlehem”

"O Holy Darkness, loving Womb,
who nurtures and creates,
sustain us through the longest night
with dreams of open gates.
We move inside to mystery
that in our center dwells,
where streams of richest beauty flow
from sacred, living wells.

Creative Darkness, closest Friend,
you whisper in the night;
you calm our fears as unknown paths
surprise us with new sight.
We marvel at your bounty,
your gifts so full and free,
unfolding as you waken us
to new reality.

O Holy Night of deepest bliss,
we celebrate your power;
infuse us with your energy
that brings our seeds to flower.
The voice out of the darkness
excites our warmest zeal
to bring together dark and light,
true holiness reveal. 

O come to us, Sophia;
your image, black and fair,
stirs us to end injustice and
the wounds of earth repair.
The treasures of your darkness
and riches of your grace
inspire us to fulfill our call,
our sacredness embrace."
