Mary’s Song

image

My soul doth magnify

And glory in the Lord

His lowly handmaiden

He has chosen over all

My spirit doth rejoice

Over God my saviour

For He has truly blessed me

And shown great favour…

Blessed and exalted

Is the fruit of her womb

The promise from ages past

Was coming very soon

I wonder if Mary

The servant of the Lord

Understood with depth

The magnitude of her call

The son she brought forth

Called Holy and righteous

Blessed Prince of Peace

Forever there to guide us

Did she know that Jesus

Is the name above all names?

That no one else can save us

And take away our shame

Did Mary know His future

And who He really was?

Did she know the price He’d pay

Upon the blood-stained cross?

Oh a mother’s heart must ache

To see her first born son

Hanging from a wooden cross

Rejected by everyone

Did she know that He would rise

And walk among them again?

To eat and drink and share with them

Until He would ascend

He left with us His Holy Spirit

Forever to dwell inside

I wonder if Mary ever knew

The significance of His life
