Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 1)

Mother and Child

1. In dawn's glad rays
  I feel The Father's hand
And with the sun
  I know the Spirit's fire;
And in the light
  I sense my mother's face
And I am filled
  With earthly love's desire.

2. I need her breast
  More than my soul can reach
I feel her warmth
  More than the heavenly ray
For she is mine
  Who made me and was made
By me to love
  To suffer and to pray.

3. And sated I
  Fall gently into sleep
And dream of pain
  That is the source of love;
But I will rise
  Through pain to save the world
And she will rise
  To live with me above.
