Mary, Mary, Mary dear
So good to see you here (rpt)
Blessed are you Mary dear
And blessed the son that you will bear.
But why am I the favoured one
That the mother of my Lord should come ?
When I saw you drawing near,
Before your greeting reached my ear
My baby leapt within for joy
God's special gift of a baby boy.
Blessed are you Mary dear,
For you believed what you did hear
The Lord has said it shall be done
You'll bear the Saviour, Lord, your son.
God's turned a page in history
When I saw you come to me
Lord your plans all soon fulfilled
Fears and doubts in me were stilled
Spirit stirring, joy so sweet,
God's special moment
As mothers meet.
Gracious God we praise your name,
Though old and young,
You've healed our shame.
Precious gifts we soon will bear
Mary we've so much to share.
*Spirit's stirring, joy so sweet,
As mothers meet. (rpt*)
Cousin Mary, Mary dear,
So good to see you here.
