Keep Letting The Light In is from and expanded release of the Getty’s Evensong album.
It’s probably a stretch as a congregational song, but it is lovely, melodic and thoughtful.

The lyrics:
Stars danced
When you were born
The moon smiled in the sky
Then with that first sun rise
The light poured in your eyes
So little did you know
How quickly you would grow

Long days
Oh, how they rush by
You were bubbling over in my arms
Now you’re dancing unaware
By the mirror without a care
So little did you know
How quickly you would grow

CHORUS
I’m here
Whispering in your ear
Oh, keep letting the light in
Keep letting the light in
Keep letting the light in

Night falls
You’re scared in the dark
Time has wakened a maze in your mind
Do you wrestle with the shadows?
Do you cover all the windows?
So little did I know
How quickly you would grow

CHORUS

Like waves on the ocean another year fades
Some burdens are lifted, some burdens remain
Sun rises and sets on all that is made
Where tables are full or now missing a face
He who said let there be light
Will surely overcome the night
As another day begins
Keep letting the light in

He’s here, He’s here
He’s here, He’s here

He’s here
Whispering in your ear
Oh, keep letting the light in
Keep letting the light in
Keep letting the light in
