Here is what the song means. Now you guys are welcome to improve it!

Mary,
Open the window
And let the sun illuminate
All the corners
Of your house.

Mary,
Look outside.
Our life wasn't made
To surround it with shadows
And sadness.

Mary, you see,
To be born, to grow up, to love is not enough
To find happiness.

The most cruel part/time/events happened (= is in the past)
Now your eyes fill up with light
And your hands with honey

Mary…

Your laughter springs up like the morning
Springs up in the garden.
Mary…
