Should it not be I who is humbled before You?
Should it not be I born in poverty awaiting Your Kingdom?
Should it not be I who seeks heaven’s rejoicing?
Is it not You who is King of all creation?
Is it not You who created me in Your likeness?
Is it not You who authored love and life?
Yet it is You who became like me
Yet it is You who humbly bore my poverty
Yet it is You who modeled love to give me life
It is, then, my duty to offer You praise
It is, then, my exaltation to obey Your commands
It is, then, my salvation to follow Your will
May I forever be humbled by Your presence
May I forever be impoverished for Your Word
May I forever be joy-filled in Your love
O Infant King teach me!
O Infant King guide me!
O Infant King fill me!
