Wearing the face you held
Before you were born
You come into this world
Fully formed
The woman in the child
Awaiting the time
To flower
Like a new star in the cosmos
Flaming bright

You are too precious to lose
Hiding in the womb
Praying for mercy
And that you may come
Safe into this world
The woman in the girl
Waiting your time
To flower
Our new star in the cosmos
Flaming bright

We will not fail you
This good night
And at the morn
The world will know the wonder
Of an angel freshly born
Flaming bright
