NIGHT PRAYER: Saturday 1/15

When it's down in the single digits, Lord,
    share your endless warmth with me...
When the fire's dying, embers glowing,
    rekindle your Spirit's spark inside me...
When the silence is deafening, speak your word,
    softly, gently, in my prayer...
When the nights are lonely, cold and long,
    call me by name and stay by my side...
When I'm not sure where next to turn,
    give me your star to lead me home...
Protect me, Lord, while I'm awake
and watch over me when I sleep
that awake, I might keep watch with you
and asleep, rest in your peace...
Tonight's music has just a hint of Christmas in the third 
verse, but we still get lost, we still need the star, we all
still seek the One who came...

Cold are the people, winter of life
We tremble in shadows this cold endless night
Frozen in the snow lie roses sleeping
Flowers that will echo the sunrise
Fire of hope is our only warmth
Weary, it's flame will be dying soon.
Voice in the distance, call in the night
On wind you enfold us You speak of the light
Gentle on the ear you whisper softly
Rumors of a dawn so embracing
Breathless love awaits darkened souls
Soon we will know of the morning.

Spirit among us, shine like the star
Your light that guides shepherds and kings from afar
Shimmer in the sky so empty, lonely
Rising in the warmth of your Son's love
Star unknowing of night and day
Spirit we wait for your loving Son.
