Nancy Kilgore is a Presbyterian minister serving as a pastoral counselor in Lebanon, New Hampshire. She writes the following about this text: "I started my ministry career as a stated supply and interim pastor, and I learned to love this hymn tune at my first church(es) ?? a yoked parish in southern Delaware. But as a worship leader, I always felt that there was a dearth of Advent hymns. A few years ago, thinking of darkness and light and healing, I wrote these words for the tune."
