Description:

Though identified as an “Advent” gathering rite, this text uses the winter cold and accompanying darkness as a metaphor for the times when we experience fear and despair, and calls upon the Holy Light to “warm our time of winter.”
While the accompanying penitential rite has a distinct Advent character, the hymn would be appropriate during the long cold, dark days of winter.
