A Carol – Dennis Northway
This haunting hymn / carol is one of my favorite pieces. It is from a time when I had faith issues,
but wished to celebrate my tradition of writing a Christmas piece each
year. This tradition was taught to me by
my organ teacher, Ronald Arnatt. It is
Sleeping child, quiet night,
Peace all around.
Enter our heardts, O Light of the Earth!
Advent light, solstice night,
Quiet and joy;
Transform our being with Transcendant Love.
Holy times, pious joy,
Longing for love;
Searching for centeredness day after day.
Turbulence, restlessness, drastic response,
Miracles glisten to show us a way.
