His light in us (satb)
Christmas is a permanently new, permanently fresh and refreshing gift: the human heart is renewed through the gift not of riches, but of a tiny, fragile child. His Light in Us is a thanksgiving, and its key word is “renewed,” reflecting the glory of what goes on in our spirits at the Christmas. Although written for Christmas, the piece can be performed any time of the year as a thanksgiving of new hope and how light now shines also in dark times.
