Glint, gleam, and glimmer cast,
Shadow bright of Love Divine,
Blinding eye, though seen pitch black,
From winding heights of Heaven's shine!
Weighty matter, drug in sinking plunge,
Sparks ignite, punching upward soar,
Felt so far, yet aside us flew,
Humbly, nearer, as ever crashed,
Our hopes, our weeps,
She gently bore,
Not ours alone,
But Mother's too!
While we in our deep sorrow loomed,
Ever faithful, ever stood,
Queen of Darkness, Great Holy Night!
