Ecce Puer

Solo Voice and Piano 2.5 minutes Music by Shase Hernandez Text by James Joyce

Ecce Puer uses the text from a poem of the same name by James Joyce.

Ecce Puer (1932)
James Joyce (1882-1941)

Of the dark past
A child is born;
With joy and grief
My heart is torn.

Calm in his cradle
The living lies.
May love and mercy
Unclose his eyes!

Young life is breathed
On the glass;
The world that was not
Comes to pass.

A child is sleeping:
An old man gone.
O, father forsaken,
Forgive your son!
