Gabriel's Message

Album: If on a Winter's Night... (2009)
  • The angel Gabriel from heaven came
    His wings as drifted snow
    His eyes as flame
    "All hail" said he "thou lowly maiden Mary
    Most highly favored lady," Gloria, Gloria

    "For known a blessed mother thou shalt be
    All generations laud and honor thee
    Thy Son shall be Emanuel
    By seers foretold
    Most highly favored maid," Gloria, Gloria

    Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head
    "To me be as it pleaseth God," she said,
    "My soul shall laud and magnify His holy name."
    Most highly favored lady, Gloria, Gloria Writer/s: EDGAR PETTMAN, SABINE BARING-GOULD
