Set the Sun Dancing (A Song for Epiphany)

Set the sun dancing! New life has begun!
Star, you must fade, for your journey is done,
New Year rides onward now, Christmas is gone,
carry the light with us as we move on.

       Refrain:  For the light that is shining is our light to hold,
       facing, embracing the darkness and cold,
       light that's not hidden where Good News is told:
       the hope that is born with Christ Jesus!

Wise men with riches of knowledge and thought
found greater treasure than ever they brought,
rose from their knees and were clothed in this light --
new understanding of power and right,

       Refrain:  And the light ...

We are the company, foolish and wise,
rich in a faith that all reason defies,
crossing the borders of culture and race,
leading by lifestyle, forgiveness and grace,

       Refrain:  And the light ...

Peace is not born at the end of a gun,
peace is a family gathered as one,
here is Epiphany, wrapped in a shawl,
Christ who is Light, who is wiser than all,

       Refrain:  And the light ...
