What unsuspecting miracle
Has passed through his first year?
Has circled round the smiling sun
To sit before us here?

What angel changeling changed our lives
Since he arrived from heaven,
Bringing home the ballyhoo
That rounds the gates of Eden?

What bright eternal soul have we
Since taken into time?
Have welcomed into weeks and days
Still stunned by the sublime?

What love has love brought to this world?
What joy has pleasure wrought?
For this, our celebration, sings
Of far more than we sought.
