Sunday Afternoon Music Video: God of Day and God of Darkness

"God of day and God of darkness,
now we stand before the night.
As the shadows stretch and deepen,
come and make our darkness bright.
All creation still is groaning
for the dawning of your might.
When the Sun of peace and justice
fills the earth with radiant light."

-- Marty Haugen

There is something so plain and simple about this video, you can hear the chair creak, there are no vocals, yet the guitar speaks with power. The tune is Beech Spring, to which Marty Haugen set God of Day and God of Darkness. All through Advent, I wrote about light and flame, now we're sitting in a moment where the earth itself is groaning, and it's people as well. Lent always seems to shift the earth under my feet, re-grounding me in the ashes and dust from whence I came.

As Lent begins, where is the music in your life and your community grounded? Share with us in the comments!
