MARY’S DELIGHT
An Advent song

By Pavel Chichikov

Prepare the sun’s outshining disk
That Christ the child be temperate
And those afire by His glow
Illuminated blessings show

Glass and limestone and the sea
The sun reflected blinding be
Prepare the beacon of the sun
To light another light, which done

Touch the flambeau to the row
Of stable windows, let them show
The ox and donkey stalls within,
The mother’s child, her mothering

So great a flame the humble sight
His Father’s joy, and her delight
