Slightly updated lyrics:

Ancient humans came from darkness and they spread across the planet
They saw the sky above them, and they learned to find their way
Out of ignorance and shadow to the hope of human kindness
They were strengthened by the knowledge that they gathered every day
And the wise all spoke of peace on earth, of harmony and struggle
Now another cycle's gone, and a new one will begin
On this darkest day of winter, when we recall that Spring will come again
On the darkest day of winter, we cherish light with green and kith and kin...
Well now, each of us must travel, yes, we all must take a journey
It seems the time is telling us to use all we can know
To help lift up the fallen and to sow the seeds of goodness
The torch has passed among us now to light the way to go
For our hearts are as a chalice, and our dreams are of the sunlight
They burn away the darkness as we kiss 'neath mistletoe
Unlike eagles, flying higher, unlike rivers down a canyon
When diamond stars shine down on us, we know whereof they glow...
And the wise still speak of peace on earth, of harmony and struggle
Yet another cycle's gone, and a new one will begin
On the darkest day of winter, when we recall that Spring will come again
On the darkest day of winter, we cherish light with green and kith and kin...
