Mary’s song

 

 

Mary, you are beautiful;

there’s a kindness in your eyes

always ready to see the good;

and every day you grow a little stronger

 and a little more wise.

 

Mary …….   Mary …..

 

Mary, you are beautiful;

full of tenderness and love

so slow to anger or to judge,

there’s a light in your kind eyes,

and every day, you grow a little stronger

and a little more wise.

 

Mary …..  Mary …..

 

Mary, when you’re tested by those

less understanding,

who find your goodness just a little

too demanding,

one day you won’t need their

approval any more,

when you’re standing

at your own front door;

looking out into the sunshine.

 

Mary  ….

 

And you’ll recall the Marys of ancient times,

who stood at the foot of the cross,

waiting for the fallen Christ,

absorbed in bitter loss;

 

 ~ to hold that body made heavy with pain,

to weep over him;

to soothe away the bloody sweat and tears

faithful companions through all his years,

 

Mother Mary and Mary Magdalene.

 

Mary,   you are beautiful.
