Jesus is born in a manger; watching with fear over the Child,
a multitude of
angels bow. Mary, like a lily, wraps the Child in swaddling clothes.
pulses from the candles, from the stars, from the snow.
Give warmth to
your little Son, Mary, full of grace.
Let the angels
in silver armor withdraw.
compassionate animals draw near and warm the baby with their breath.
