A Time Has Come      A Time Has Come MP3 (1,4 MB)
Tune: ""Es ist für uns eine Zeit angekommen", German folk song

A time has come now for us to remember
to walk the blissful ways of Yule.   (2x)
Through the snowflakes´ whirling flight
Wandering, wandering,
through the silent winter night.

Under the ice slumber brooklets and lakes,
and the woods are dreaming a deeper dream.  (2x)
Through the world all wrapped in white
Wandering, wandering,
through the silent winter night.

From the high heavens a luminous silence
is filling all our hearts with joy.    (2x)
In the starry, gleaming light
Wandering, wandering,
through the silent winter night.

The days grow shorter and darker,
the light of the Gods is growing in our hearts.    (2x)
Round the Yulefire, side by side,
singing all, singing all,
singing all the long winter´s night.

The year is ending, a new one begins,
and the Aesir always walk with us.    (2x)
Round the Yuletree shining bright
celebrate, celebrate,
the return of warmth and light.
