Birth is made of bright light and a loving face
And hoping for a lifetime in someone’s embrace

And there’s something in the cry
That pierces like a knife
It puts to rest your doubts
And wakens you to life

Life is made of water and a million signs
Though doves may not descend to you every time

There’s something in a song
That carries up your heart
Like the silver flashing wings
As a thousand sparrows dart

Death is made of whispers and trumpet calls
And finding there are parts of you you never knew at all

There’s something in the weight
That’s lifted off your chest
When you hear the voice
Of One who knows you best
And your body finds its heart
Beating in the breast
Of the Maker of your life
The Maker of your death
