A child just turned a woman, became the chosen one,
To hold the Son of God within – to be her firstborn Son.
She wasn’t someone special – a lowly servant girl –
But God had special plans for her and also for the world.
Through Mary’s contemplation of this high exalted state,
She knew that God would come to earth to wipe away all hate.
To bring to man forgiveness from his every single sin.
Fulfill His word of promise and make us clean within.
Though she was just a child herself, with faith and confidence,
She rode across that rugged road, with God’s own providence,
The journey would be over soon and Jesus would be born,
To save the world from death’s strong hold as angels did adorn.
The Savior of the world was born – redeemer of our souls,
This little child of Bethlehem would heed His Father’s goals,
He came in lowly poverty yet King of all the earth,
We praise Him for His holiness and for His human birth.
