through the darkness

gaudete!
anticipation arises
over the din of despair
through the gray confusion
joy illumines all mist
beyond the noise of excess
we sob and sigh
leaning on Love
now let’s pause and collect
the rising light tells
He’s so close by
in the pain and promise
He’s right here
we pray and praise
gaudete!
