The lyrics

The hunter flies
through the winter skies
so clear,
so clear;

the baby lies
asleep and wise
so dear,
so dear.

The morning's daughters
have come to bring,
where the star stands,
where the star stands,
sweetness, power, and suffering
in their bright hands,
in their bright hands.

The soft snows keep
the earth asleep:
sunrise is near
sunrise is near
sunrise is near
sunrise is near.
