As she sat among the women
While they did their daily sewing,
Did she sometimes feel the flutter
Of the babe inside her growing?
Did she listen to the stories
From the mothers gathered there
Of the pains involved in birthing
And the problems of child care?
Did she often pause to wonder
With her needle in her hand
How she’d been the one thus chosen?
Would she ever understand?
Was she fearful for her future?
For this honor she was glad,
But did thoughtless words of others
Find her sometimes feeling sad?
Did she tell the other women
Of the blessing she’d received?
Were there any in this circle
Who knew what she had believed?
Was she trusting that her man-child
Promised as the coming King
Over sin would be the victor
And the world salvation bring?
Did her faithful heart within her
Meet with God in sweet accord
As she sat in prayerful waiting
Making garments for the Lord?
