Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 2)

A Candle for a Maid

  1. Twixt crib and cross
    Twixt straw and bark
    Twixt holly and thorn
    Twixt light and dark:
    A candle for a maid
    Twixt happy and sad.
  2. Bound gloom and gold
    Bound Smoke and blood,
    Bound myrrh and tomb,
    Bound star and cloud:
    A candle for a maid
    Bound Swaddle and shroud.
  3. Raised love from hate
    Raised plough from sword
    Raised life from death
    Raised flesh from Word:
    A candle for a maid
    Who bore Our Lord.
