(Source: as heard)

Just as two breaths become one breath,
As two whispers become a cry,
Miracle before us lies,
The glory of a new-born child.
These half-closed eyes already see,
Looking without looking within.
A testament of truth before, before our eyes.
The glory of a new-born child.
This place, where life's long path begins,
If they be princes, queens, or kings,
Laid helpless here at mother's side,
The glory of a new-born child.


Another, uncredited version of the song, sung by someone else, follows the last track on Le Premier Cri ("Vanessa"). Unlike Sinéad's version, it features an electric, rock and roll arrangement.
