Bruce Cockburn – Christmas Song lyrics

Fire-bright faces in winter night A dog in the distance barks The sky speaks in patterns of starlight The fire replies in sparks
The stream is a motionless moment Salmon in the sea swims deep Pregnant with force as a prayer is Spring in the hard earth sleeps
Like the snow on the stark spruce limb Coated with ice, then stripped by wind We melt away and return again Stronger for the tempering flame Stronger for the Saviour's name.
