Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 3)

Tiny Infant

Tiny infant in the manger
Help me be an infant too,
Cast aside sophistication,
So I may be more like you.

Shepherd in the field abiding
Waiting for the happy news,
May your awestruck worship make me
worship when I would not choose.

Monarch setting gifts before you
Help me give the things I prize,
Without fame or calculation,
Only seen by your blest eyes.

Mary who agreed to bear you
With no thought of pride nor gain
Help me love him as you loved him,
Share the wonder, and the pain.
