Track Name: To Us A Child Of Hope Is Born
Lyrics by John Mor­ris­on, 1781, alt.
Track Name: Maker of Stars, Be Born
Break these boundaries of fallen nature
Please tear asunder
Maker of stars, be born
Do not wait, do not wait,
Do not wait

(lyric inspired by "Tsunami and Theodicy" by David Bentley Hart)
