1 In the darkness of the night
the people walk in sorrow;
they have not seen, nor can they know
the light that dawns tomorrow.
For a Child is born to us;
to us a Son is given:
his holy name the Prince of peace,
the Mighty God of heaven.

2 In the darkness of the night
a host of angels gather
to greet the Wonderful, the Wise,
the Everlasting Father.
For a Child...

3 In the darkness of the night
where Judah's hills lie dreaming,
the virgin mother of the Christ
beholds our world's redeeming.
For a Child...
