    Lyrics

    If it wasn't for the night
    So cold this time of year
    The stars would never shine so bright
    So beautiful and clear

    I have walked this road alone
    My thin coat against the chill
    When the light in me was gone
    And my winter house was stilled

    When I grieved for all I'd made
    Out of all I had to give
    On the eve of Christmas day
    With no reason left to live

    And even then somehow in the bitter wind and cold
    Impossibly strong I know
    Even then a bloom as tender as a rose
    Was breaking through the snow
    In the dark night of the soul, in the dark night of the soul

    If it wasn't for the babe
    Lying helpless in the straw
    There would be no Christmas day
    And the night would just go on

    When it seems that death has won
    Buried deep beneath the snow
    Where the summer leaves have gone
    The seed of hope will grow

    Even now somehow in the bitter wind and cold
    Impossibly strong you know
    Even now a bloom as tender as a rose
    Is breaking through the snow
    In the dark night of the soul, in the dark night of the soul
    In the dark night of the soul

    If it wasn't for the night
    So cold this time of year
    Stars would never shine so bright
    So beautiful and clear, so beautiful and clear
