O Holy Darkness, Loving Womb

Lyrics by Jann Aldredge-Clanton. Sung to the tune of "O Holy Town of Bethlehem."

O Holy Darkness, loving womb, who nurtures and creates,
Sustain us through the longest night with dreams of open gates.
We move inside to mystery that in our center dwells,
Where streams of richest beauty flow from sacred living wells.

Creative Darkness, closest friend, you whisper in the night;
You calm our fears as unknown paths surprise us with new sight.
We marvel at you bounty, your gifts so full and free,
Unfolding as you waken us to new reality.

O Holy Night of deepest bliss, we celebrate your power;
Infuse us with your energy that brings our seeds to flower.
The voice out of the darkness excites our warmest zeal
To bring together dark and light, true holiness reveal.

O Holy Christ-Sophia, your image, black and fair,
Stirs us to end injustice and the wounds of Earth repair.
The treasures of your darkness and riches of your grace
Inspire us to fulfill our call, our sacredness embrace.
