Painting by Julie Mathey 

From dusk till dawn a light is drawn

By stars shining bright behold this sight

Beyond time somewhere under the earth

Death falls away to make known her worth

In the abyss of darkness she stands

Upon the sword of the word and life in her hands

Balance has tipped her forward and above

To safety she’s lifted with the wings of the dove

Her belly is pregnant and in hope she abides

Nothing can stop the advance of the bride
