Amber wrote "Light to the World" on the winter solstice of 2010. As fate would have it, she played it live within a few weeks of composing it at the candlelight vigil outside of Representative Gabrielle Giffords' office for a community in mourning after the January 8, 2011 shootings in Tucson, Arizona.

Lyrics

She wanders through the valleys and the hills
On this dark, dark winter’s night
The leaves left the trees
The townspeople cast her to the waning light
Searching for a home, searching for a place to rest her head
Something inside of her is wanting release
On this dark, dark winter’s night
The star in the heavens reminds her of Light Divine
Where there is no fear, no separation, no suffering, only One

CHORUS:
And the angels sing, Glory
Come lay your head, Glory
And you shall be fed
As you bring forth
Light to the world
On this dark night

I walk through the streets of the desert
On this dark, dark winter’s night
Treading with a heavy heart
Broken by the war raging around me
Red and blue sirens are singing in the key of tragedy
Yet the Peace that passes all understanding
Is standing here, holding me
The star in the heavens reminds me of Light Divine
Where there is no hunger, no hate, no greed, only One

REPEAT CHORUS

We wander through the valleys and hills
On this dark, dark winter’s night
I reach for your hand and walk beside you
My lantern grows bright
The star in the heavens beckons us to Light Divine
Where there is no fear, no separation, no suffering, only One

CHORUS
And the angels sing, Glory
Come lay your head, Glory
And you are fed
As you bring forth, Light to the world
As WE bring forth, Light to the world
As we bring forth, Light to the world On this dark night
