A song for all the Marys

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, 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, 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.

 

 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 blood, sweat and tears;

faithful companions through all his years.

Mother Mary and Mary Magdalene.

 

 Mary,   you are beautiful.
