I am the mother of fair love,
and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope.
Sweet Mother, hold me close to your heart.
It pulsates with the life and love of your Beloved Son, Jesus.
Its every beat proclaims Him, its every throb glorifies Him.
I want to live like this ~ like you! ~ but I am selfish and afraid.
Hold me close, dear Mother, and show me
how to be a living sacrifice of praise for Him!
