EXPLANATION OF THE GLOSSING SYSTEM
(to understand how I describe the signs in this translation).
Refrain: HOLY DARK, GOD BLESS NIGHT,
HEAVEN OFFER ANSWER, BUT WE alt.OVERLOOK.
WHILE WE WAIT, GOD SEEM SILENT.
YOUR-ctr HOLY NIGHT COMFORT US.
1. GOD SAY, ME WATCH HOW SADNESS AFFFECT YOU"all";
ME TEACH"each" YOUR"all" SOUL MOURN.
HAPPEN YOU"all" FEEL ALONE, NOW READY,
MY SEED YOU"all" ACCEPT IDEA~LIKE GROUND.
2. ME TEACH"each" COMPASSION LEAD-TO SACRIFICE.
YOU"all" WITNESS MY EMPTY GRAVE.
SOMETIMES MY LOVE LOOK LIKE ANGRY STORM,
BUT THAT SAME LOVE SAVE YOU"all" CAN.
3. YOU"all" HELP ME PUSH, MAKE MOUNTAIN?
YOU"all" GUIDE MORNING STAR WITH ME?
HAPPEN COMMAND, WILL EAGLE FLY OBEY YOU"all"?
WHY YOU"all" DOUBT MY POWER?
4. DURING WORSE DEEP HOUR WORLD SEEM DARK,
ME alt.GIFT YOU"all" UNTIL BECOME RICH.
HAPPEN SILENCE MAKE YOUR"all" SPIRIT SAME,
YOUR"all" SOUL INSPIRED R-I-CH.
5. PARALLEL GUARD LOOK-FORWARD MORNING LIGHT,
PARALLEL WOMAN LOOK-FORWARD MARRY MAN,
SAME WE WAIT FOR YOU-ctr GOD,
WHILE WE REST UNDER YOUR-ctr MOON.
Refrain: Holy darkness, blessed night,
heaven's answer hidden from our sight.
As we await you, o God of silence,
we embrace your holy night.
1. I have tried you in fires of affliction;
I have taught your soul to grieve.
In the barren soil of your loneliness
there I ill plant my seed.
2. I have taught you the price of compassion;
you have stood before the grave.
Though my love can seem like a raging storm
this is the love that saves.
3. Were you there when I raised up the mountains?
Can you guide the morning star?
Does the hawk take flight when you give command?
Why do you doubt my power?
4. In your deepest hour of darkness
I will give you wealth untold.
When the silence stills your spirit,
will my riches fill your soul.
5. As the watchman waits for morning,
and the bride awaits her groom,
so we wait to hear your footsteps
as we rest beneath your moon.
