It’s dark December, let’s complain:
Why every winter tell again
how God was born in Bethlehem
to bring salvation to all men.

Out of Egypt
We work, we wait, we work, we wait again.
And all the time the promise waits with God.
The promise of a land. A land which flows
with milk and honey, rich with wheat and oil,
where we can build our houses, till our fields,
can plant our gardens, tend our rows of beans.
Where harvest times and festivals will mark
the gifts which God has granted through the land.
