Joe Offer Lyr Add: Solstice songs! (35) Lyr Add: LIGHT IS RETURNING (Charlie Murphy) 13 Dec 00

Here's another one. Carol Holdstock sang it at our session last week. It's a good song, even for us non-pagans.

(Charlie Murphy ??)

Light is returning, even though this is the darkest hour
No one can ho-o-o-old back the dawn.

Let's keep it burning. Let's keep the light of hope alive;
Make safe our journey.... through the storm.

One planet is turning, circling on her path around the sun;
Earth Mother is calling her children home.

(Carol thinks Charlie Murphy recorded it, doesn't know if he wrote it)

This song may be on a recording of women's music; also, it may be found in one of Starhawk's books.
A search of the Web (click) indicates that Charlie Murphy wrote the song in 1984, and it appears on an album titled "Canticles of Light," by Charlie Murphy, Jami Sieber and the Total Experience Choir (Out Front Music, P.O. Box 12188, Seattle, WA 98102)
