lyrics

The longest night lies heavy on the hard and barren ground
and the crackling air does seem to snap with ev'ry random sound
The lowest gather in the sheep
and rightly dread what the long night brings
But a gift lies in the valley

The hands the steer the ship of state seem guided just by greed
eyes raised in pious parody see stars and never need
the haves grow fewer every day
while ever more in tribute's paid
But a gift lies in the valley

Some curse the dark, some lift a lamp, some freeze in their despair
some wonder in the face of hate if any power cares
But listen in the longest night
for hearts yet warm and inward light
and a gift lies in the valley.
