The Mother-God’s lullaby

1 Feb, 2014 | Uncategorized

My God, tenderly asleep  between my arms

My child cuddled up against my thumping heart,

I worship in my hands and dandle amazed,

The marvel, o God, that you gave me.


What could I give you back, me on whom fell

Your Grace ? O God, I smile to myself

For I also had, poor and limited as I am,

I had a grace and gave it to You.

(free translation from Marie-Noël’s poem)
