The Gift of Eternal Love

Let your goodness, Lord, appear to us,
that we, made in your image , conform oursleves to it.
In our own strength we cannot imitate your majesty, power and wonder;
nor is it fitting for us to try.
But your mercy reaches from the heavens, through the clouds, to the earth below.
You have come to us as a small child,
but you have brought us the greatest of all gifts, the gift of eternal love.
Caress us with your tiny hands, embrace us with your tiny arms,
and pierce our hearts with your soft sweet cries. 

Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153)
