about

When Darkness is a response to the recent tragedies in Abbotsford. It's a liturgy and a lament. Written and recorded in the week following the event, as a way to process.

This is a live demo, but please feel free to download if it would be helpful for you to be listening to. Lift our eyes, we pray.

Defender of the weakest ones, be near to us we pray
Defender of the helpless ones, be near to us we pray.

Defender of the fragile ones, be near to us we pray
Defender of the strengthless ones, be near to us we pray.

Lift our eyes, lift our eyes to see Your face
Lift our eyes, lift our eyes to see Your grace.

Defender of the innocent, be near to us we pray
Defender of the broken ones, be near to us we pray.

Lift our eyes, lift our eyes to see Your face
Lift our eyes, to somehow see Your grace.

When darkness clothes our eyes
When darkness fills our days
When darkness floods our lives
Be near to us, we pray.

When darkness clothes our minds
When darkness has its way
Throughout our senseless lives
Be near to us, we pray
Lift our eyes, we pray
Defend our hearts, we pray
