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.

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

Caressing embrace

     Our souls, like seeds,

Yearning, ever aching

Awake and pray for the

Sweet promised grace
