christmas day 2013

Here in this place, new light is streaming,

our real christmas tree Now is the darkness vanished away;

Brought out of night to the light of this day.

Gather us in, the blind and the lame;

Call to us now, and we shall awaken,

cover up

We shall arise at the sound of our name.

Not in the dark of buildings confining,

house through trees
Not in some heaven, light years away;

isle of skye from habetrot

But here in this place, new light is shining–

christmas eve day
Now is the kingdom, now is the day!

Gather us in and hold us forever,

stevie snuggling

Gather us in, and make us your own;

Dobin current location Gather us in, all peoples together,

teen queen at string thing
Fire of love in our flesh and our bone….


fire of love
