In the bleakness of the winter,
lost in gloomy shades of night,
all humanity stands watching,
longing for God's promised Light --
Light of God, shine through our darkness,
come, Lord Jesus, quickly come!
Son of God, come live among us,
come, Lord Jesus, quickly come.
Once he came, and still he's coming
to complete his kingdom's reign,
to relieve all pain and sorrow,
to restore earth's peace again --
Doing justice, showing mercy,
praying, praising, we will wait,
wide awake to greet his coming,
ready for the Daystar's light --
