From the recording Christmas Lullaby

<p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">There's a lot about Christmas I didn't like very much, but as a parent I could definitely relate to the story of a mother and her new-born child.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><br />This song is inspired by the realization that every mother is Mary, and every baby is a miracle.</span></p>


<p>Baby, sleep. Ox and sheep, watch will keep your slumbering.</p>
<p>They can sense the magic that's gathered for your birth.</p>
<p>Close your eyes. If I cry, it's just that I am wondering,</p>
<p>what it means to my life that you're here on the earth.</p>
<p>Who am I? And why was I selected for this task?</p>
<p>Give my baby to the world -- that's a lot to ask.</p>
<p>Child divine, as if a sign, a star is shining over us.</p>
<p>The night sky is so hopeful to have you in this place.</p>
<p>Snuggle tight, from the night. That special light watches over us.</p>
<p>Your mother's heart is lifted to watch your lovely face.</p>
<p>I know you'll change the world. You'll be a paragon, sublime.</p>
<p>But the troubled world can wait, and for now you're mine.</p>
<p>Baby sleep...</p>
