Magnified, sanctified

Be thy holy name

Vilified, crucified

In the human frame

A million candles burning

For the love that never came

You want it darker

We kill the flame

If you are the dealer

Let me out of the game

If you are the healer

I’m broken and lame

If thine is the glory

Mine must be the shame

You want it darker

Hineni, hineni

Hineni, hineni

I’m ready, my Lord

 – You Want It Darker, Leonard Cohen

“In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:4-5
