“December Prayer”



As I walked outside this morning to head to work, the blue sky and sunrise that I expected had been replaced by thick fog. The fog felt heavy and it muffled the sounds of busy city life that I knew had to be happening within earshot.

The quiet reminded me of a song, December Prayer, written and performed by Broadway star Idina Menzel.  These are the lyrics of the chorus:

Hear the song within a silence,
See the beauty when there’s nothing there,
Sing a song within a silence
That hope and love are everywhere,
And when the quiet night is falling
Watch an angel dancing in the air
To the song, the song within the silence
a December Prayer, a December Prayer.

The song is really beautiful, and I invite you to take a listen:

Shabbat shalom, jen
