O Silence Divine (Soft, Soft It Falls)
Here is a Solstice song to celebrate the Wiccan Sabbat of Midwinter, or Yule.
One of the blessed things about Winter Solstice, to me, is the pause where the Earth seems to hold Her breath... just before the Solstice dawns.
This is one of my favourite Solstice songs. To the tune of “Oh Holy Night,”
this lovely tune seems to express that sacred pause, and reach out from the heart to the Sun’s return, and our need for that Light.
Please feel free to print out this Soltice song and bring it to sing-alongs. And send your friends links to this page so they can get their own print-out. However, the lyrics are copyrighted, so please don’t distribute copies of these to others, or (karmic disaster!) post them on your website, sell them or claim them as your own work.
P.S. If you make a recording of these Soltice songs, please send me a link so I can hear too! Thanks!!
O Silence Divine
Snow softly falls
This silent Solstice morning
All the green Earth is blessed
Pure in white
Bright the Day shines
On quiet Solstice morning
On this brief day
The air is so light
The light, the light is sacred and forever
E-ven through the darkest, longest night
Soft, soft it falls
The snow, the peace, the new light
O silence divine
Tha-at whi...spers this Name
O silence divine
O Light, oh Light Divine!
Earth, in Her sleep,
On silent Solstice morning,
Accepts the new Sun’s
Our souls, like seeds,
Yearning, ever aching
Awake and pray for the
Sweet promised grace
