When nature paved way for my formation,
You received and kept me in your womb.
When the womb could no longer bear me,
You delivered me to see the world.
You consecrated me to Christ
Since the world couldn’t allot me salvation.
You sent me to school
Inasmuch as the house was not conducive
For an auspicious futurity.
When the world castigated me,
You spurred me on.
But when I was led awry
By the delights of the world,
You chided me.
I have pitched a monument of you
In my noble heart
That I will never forget you,
Your great love
And consummate care.
