From the recording Nomadic Treasures
Music: Avishai Darash
Lyrics: Irini Konstantinidi
When a child is born and you hear the first cry like a song,
The first breath in these lungs comes along
To ensure that a new life has won.
It will enter the world, this newborn
As a hope to be wiser and strong
to become what it is meant to be
It will grow up to reach every peak.
What a great gift!
This newborn brings a spiritual lift
It embodies a soul in pure form
What a creature divine to wait for.
It’s the hope of a whole human line
And a reason to read every sign
Every star in the sky seem so close
When this newborn arrives…
It brings light, a promise to fight the dark side of you and brighten the blue.
Look in these eyes, you’ll see no lies
Can you recall yourself as newborn?
