The lowliest of Creatures are called to do God's work.
The burden is not great,
though the journey is long.
The time passes slowly
accompanied only by her sweet song.

We arrive at a dwelling,
but no room can be found.
We find space in a stable
where I, with the other animals, bow down

I see Joseph embrace Mary,
and dance with shout of joy,
for he knows the destiny,
of that baby boy.
