In the stillness of the starlit night
I flew within my dream,
Searching far and wide,
To find a gift, to give my heart away
For a sweeter love to fly.
I heard a voice, a whisper low
Yet, clear for me to know,
This is the place for you to grasp
A boundless love to show.
You will return, to be restored
Out of the darkness of this dream,
When you are carried in eternal light
My radiance can be forever seen.
That light has shone since I was born
And from within you I will shine,
In this, your time in history
I chose you to be Mine.
Now My life beams from your heart
For My beauty you have seen,
You will be My bell tower keeper
To ring out loud and clear
The love I give
tolls Christmas is forever
It is not a dream.
