The words of this poignant carol were written by the composer. Take Away My Sorrow is featured on Voices Of Hope's album A New Christmas



So many mysteries, so many agonies I do not understand
On this night of stars I await your grace
I await the one who when he shows his face takes away my sorrow
So many troubles, so many struggling, so many bowed in grief.
On this night of faith you will set me free
And I praise the Son who when he smiles at me takes away my sorrow
Take away my sorrow, take away my sorrow, take away my sorrow
On this night of love you have come for me
It is you who through eternity takes away my sorrow
