1. Through the silence sounds a Word,
 +
deeply spoken, deeply heard.
 +
Life, in every realm, is stirred
 +
at the sounding of the Word.
 +
 
 +
2. In the darkness shines a Light,
 +
racing through the cosmic night
 +
Ever-burning, ever-bright,
 +
ever-welcome in the Light.
 +
 
 +
3. Gift of God, robust and fresh,
 +
wakes into a simple creche.
 +
Worlds, once disconnected, mesh:
 +
Christ, the word and Light, takes flesh.
