Hopes Jamendo Music track cover
  • Behold the mother with her newborn child!
An icon of a hope that never dies.
Death may label all we cherish lies,
Yet this love lies too deep to be defiled.
    I lost my sight and found my son.
I needed you; you came to me.
I thought my joy in life was done.
You showed me what I could not see.
    How beautiful to have made you!
I thought my joy in life was done.
    But life and love are ever new.
    How beautiful to have made you!
    I thought my love in life was done.
I lost my sight and found my son.
    
We clear an inner field where fate has smiled,
Letting play the pleasures of surmise,
Holding back all contrary replies,
As though our thoughts might turn the winters mild.

    I thought my joy in life was done.
You showed me what I could not see.
    CHORUS
    Despite the well-known travesties of time,
Each time a child is born we dream anew,
For only thus our losses are regained.
Though we must share the destiny of slime,
    
No passion in our palette is more true
Than that which cradles innocence unstained.
    CHORUS
