We Are Silent … and Expectant; Let the Star of Morning Rise
Adapted from Ted Loder
How silently, And so, Lord God
How silently in the deepest night
the wondrous gift is given. there rises the star of morning
We would be silent now, the herald of a new day you are making
Lord, a day of great joy dawning
and expectant … for the sake of him
that we may receive in whom it was born
the gift we need, and shines forever,
so we may become even Jesus the Christ.
the gift others need.
