even so...rejoice.

oh come Thou Dayspring come and cheer
oh, Papa, do we ever need your peace. your cheer. your arms to wrap around us.

our spirits by thine advent here
we wait. we dare to hope again. we dream.

disperse the gloomy clouds of night
the clouds this week have have been more sobering than before

and death's dark shadows put to flight
remind us that death, even senseless, tragic, angering death does not win

rejoice, rejoice
give us the strength, the faith, the will to rejoice again

God is with us. GOD is WITH us.

has come to thee, oh Israel
