Coming Into the light .

Lyrics

Comng into the light .
Snow-
on Grafton Street
cold hands and feet
(But it)- makes the world seem holy again
We- stop and we stare-
at this tinsel affair-
Another shop window nativity scene-
So unreal-

But maybe I can believe
in the wonder I see
in eyes of the mother and child
standing by me
and pause their lives for a while
In the cold winter street
to enter the dream -

Of a new born baby
On a Christmas bright
Of a whole world turning
Coming into the light .

Then remembering ourselves
Time moves again
“There’s so much still to be done”-
Clutching our bags,
We turn our backs-
On these angels of glitter and foam
So unreal-

But I know I can believe

In the new born baby
In a Christmas bright
Of a whole world turning
Coming into the light.

In a new born baby
On a Christmas bright
Of a whole world changing
Coming into the light. D Carolan ©
