Psalm 139:5, 12-16... a Prayer for Olive

You hem [Olive] in - behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon [her]...

...Even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.

For you created [Olive's] inmost being;
you knit [her] together in [her] mother's womb.

[We] praise you because [she is] fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
[We] know that full well.

[Olive's] frame was not hidden from you
when [she] was made in the secret place.
When [she] was woven together in the depths of the earth,

your eyes saw [her] unformed body.
All the days ordained for [Olive]
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
