Oh child of light. We’ve been waiting all our days for a hope like yours that burns bright, tastes sweet and fills us for the days to come.
You entered in chaos, a world on its knees, the earth creaking with hurt, a people stumbling around in darkness.
We were waiting, we’ve been waiting all our lives.
And with your first breath, you stilled it all. Every creak, groan, and pain – stilled. That first tiny breath of life was light in the dark, the antidote to despair, the solution to death, the remedy of fear. Hope for a lifetime.
Oh child of light. We’ve been yearning all our days for a love like yours that crosses time, covers space and overturns any barrier in its way.
We were waiting, we’ve been waiting for hope to come.
Now here you are.
