Lyrics

Who has lit the starlight that shines so bright in your
eyes?
Who has lit the darkness for the shepherds on this
night?
Who has placed the straw crown that sits upon your
small brow?
Who has brought the wise men to the stable, precious
child?

Are you one of many more or the one they're waiting
for?
You my little child so close to my heart
Have I given you in birth to be the treasure of the
earth?
Are you truly heaven laying cradle in my arms?

Why the tears you're crying? What has made you
frightened?
Why do your tiny fingers hold so tightly momma's hair?
See the dancing shadows, feel how soft the wind blows
It's following an angel that was only just there

Are you one of many more or the one they're waiting
for?
You my little child so close to my heart
Have I given you in birth to be the treasure of the
earth?
Are you truly heaven laying cradle in my arms?

May you greet all others as sisters and as brothers
And may you be received with only love and gentleness
Wherever time may take you I will not forsake you
Grant this mother's prayer that your days of mirth be
blessed

Are you one of many more or the one they're waiting
for?
You my little child so close to my heart
Have I given you in birth to be the treasure of the
earth?
Are you truly heaven laying cradle in my arms?

Who has lit the starlight that's shining bright in your
eyes?
Shining like a diamond over little Bethlehem
