Softly sleeping, sent from heaven,
Shining light against the cold,
You will renew me, waken my soul.
Bring me out of darkness and waken my soul.
Word of God born in darkness,
Gift of wisdom from afar,
You will refresh me, open my heart;
Bring me out of darkness and open my heart.
And may Your light burn in me;
May Your love endless be.
May You be always with me.
Child of God, sleeping saviour,
As You rest my world awaits,
Needing forgiveness,
Needing your kindness.
Now You have found me,
Waken my soul.
Bring me out of darkness and waken my soul.
