Below the red smiling sun are lyrics from folk singer/songwriter Charlie Murphy (1953-2016). Murphy was a pioneering musician in regards to promoting gay rights and challenging sexism. His 1984 song “Light is Returning” is often used by pagan communities around the winter solstice. The lyrics speak to any person or any society facing difficult times.
Light is returning
Even though this is the darkest hour
Nothing can hold back the dawn
Let’s keep it burning
Let’s keep the flame of hope alive
Make safe our journey
Through the storm
