Friday Music: Advent Song


Look, God, look
in the vastness of your dark
hear this song
in the chorus of the world
where I sing
for the glory of your coming
held by love
as the music pours from me
a flame within
as the night falls around me
hear my prayer
and come through the darkness
hold me waiting
as you wait to be born.

This first performance at Choral Evensong in Holy Trinity, Dunoon, Argyll, December 2011.

words by Christine McIntosh, music by John McIntosh

Thanks to my friend Perpetua for the introduction by posting this song on her Facebook page.


Thanks for sharing this beautiful contemplative piece. At this time of year, I usually seek out "old favorites," but it is always good to find something new!
