Not through the edict of a king or prince

Not through the strength of a warrior or general

But through the womb of a woman

The earth shook and changed for ever


She was humble, young and gentle

Yet given the power to carry

The Light of the World

Fragile as glass, at it’s first flickering


She simply said yes

And submitted to the Greater Power

The Blessed Will that desired

Peace on earth, good will toward all


Life was born

Conquered evil, brokenness and death

Once and for all

Through the womb of a woman
