Intro: G-D/F#-Em-Em7/D-F-Am-Dsus-D


Refrain
        G       D/F#            Em Em7/D
Holy darkness, blessed night,
              C              D                  Gsus  G
heaven's answer hidden from our sight.

G/F#  Em      Em7/D           C     C/B
As we await you, O God of silence,

      Am7               D     Gsus G
we embrace your holy night.

Verse 1
         D                D/F#      EmI have tried you in fires of affliction; 
          E                            Am Am7
I have taught your soul to grieve.

       D         D/C              G/B      Em
In the barren soil of your loneliness,

C            Am        Dsus D
there I will plant my seed.

(Repeat Refrain)

Verse 2 (Same chords in Verse 1)

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.

(Repeat Refrain)

Verse 3 (Same chords as in Verse 1)
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 pow'r?

Verse 4

         Cdim     B7            Em
In your deepest hour of darkness

     C              D         Bm  Em
I will give you wealth untold.

              Cdim  B7                  Em
When the silence stills your spirit,

          FM7      Am     Dsus D
will my riches fill your soul.
(Repeat Refrain)


Verse 5 (Same chords as in Verse 4)
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.
