about

I was feeling so Christmasy that I decided to write a Christmas song myself! This was recorded live in a concert hall, when I performed it for the first time.

lyrics

On the other side
of the frosty window
there's a world of
snow

The wind is a cry in the night
the moon a glowing hole
lighting the way
for the ghost

Jesu, Joy of man's desiring
they followed this same skyline
to make him known.
Jesu, aquí está por fin (here you are at last)
let us enter in
to make you known.

Instrumental

Follow, follow,
the stars will lead you,
in excelsis Deo...
Gloria!
Aquí está (Here you are)
Encienda una vela (light a candle).

A snowy night
with the wind in your hair
traverse only if you dare
to find your home.
Noche (night),
con el Rey de la luz (with the king of light),
todavía estoy buscándote (I'm still looking for you)
so where are you?

Instrumental

Follow, follow
in excelsis Deo!
gloria, gloria, Gloria!
Encienda una vela... (light a candle)
Aquí está (He is here).
