Blessed be children, fruit of the world's love
Blessed be faces turned to the sky
Grow in us wonder as in a child's face
Gift us with love for hows and for whys

Open to mystery, mind of a new world
Open to questions having no end
Grow in us wonder as in a child's mind
Gift us with loving, free as the wind

Open to find love, tender as waking
Open to friendship, eager to play
Grow in us wonder as in a child's heart
Gift us with loving, tender as rain

Open to singing, sound of our passion
Open to crying, sound of our need
Grow in us wonder as in a child's voice
Gift us with love in full melodies

Blessed be grown-ups, fruit of the world's love
Welcome as children in tender arms
Grow in us wonder as in a child's life
Gift us with life in wondering love
