The Night, by Toby Young features on Apollo5’s new Christmas album, A Deep But Dazzling Darkness.

Text: Henry Vaughan

Through that pure virgin shrine,
That sacred veil drawn o’er Thy glorious moon,
That men might look and live, as glowworms shine,
And face the moon,
Wise Nicodemus saw such light
As made him know his God by night.

Dear night! this world’s defeat;
The stop to busy fools; care’s check and curb;
The day of spirits; my soul’s retreat,
Which none disturb!
Er more than I can do by night.

There is in God, some say,
A deep but dazzling darkness,
as men, because they see not all clear,
O for that night! where I in Him
Might live invisible and dim!

The album was released on 3rd December 2021 on the Voces8 Records Label.
