Her Baby, Newly Breathing

Author: Brian Wren Hymnal: Chalice Hymnal #158 (1995) Meter: D Hymnal Title: Chalice Hymnal Lyrics: 1 Her baby, newly breathing, with wailing needful cry, by Mary kissed and cradled, is lulled in lullaby. Long months of hope and waiting, the thrill and fear of birth, are crowned with exultation, and God is on the earth. 2 The eyes that gaze at Mary have yet to name or trace the world of shape and color, or recognize a face; yet Holiness Eternal is perfectly expressed in hands that clutch unthinking, and lips that tug the breast. 3 The milk of life is flowing as Mary guides and feeds her wordless Word, embodied in infant joys and needs. Enormous, formless strivings, and yearnings deep and wide, be-cradled in communion, are fed and satisfied. 4 How mother-like the Wisdom that carried and gave birth to all things, seen and unseen, and nurtured infant earth: unstinting, unprotected, prepared for nail and thorn, constricted into maleness, and of a woman born.
