Mary's Epiphany Prayer
This little Light of mine, cradled in my arms asleep, I'm gonna shine for you! Little Light, for you I will not rest until the world is a little gentler, a little kinder, a little saner, so that it welcomes you as you grow. Sweet Light, the sun is dim for me compared to your smile. You are the twinkle in my eye and the soft spot in my heart; no one else has my love quite like you. Let the storms rain and torment -- I promise that I will shine like a rainbow to protect you. Let them try to extinguish me -- I will always burn with enough light to nurture your own. You are my revelation and joy, the brightest Star in the night that is this life. Light of my world, here is my light. I'm gonna shine for you!
