Mary’s Prayer

DSC_0304

If I say yes, where will it lead?
All my life was planned until your angel came
If I say yes, what will it mean?
To accept this life, my child, your Son, the King

Be it done to me, according to your word
Be it done to me, by the working of your power
Be it done to me, my life is yours, my heart
I am your handmaid, my Lord, I am your handmaid, my Lord

If I trust you to guide my steps,
Will I shed more tears than laugh, in the days to come?
Will I wake lonely in the night?
Will Joseph still be at my side?

Be it done to me, according to your word
Be it done to me, by the working of your power
Be it done to me, my life is yours, my heart
I am your handmaid, my Lord, I am your handmaid, my Lord

If I let your Spirit fall on me
Will you give me the strength I need?
When I see my Son
When I see my Lord
When I see my God
Torn and bruised because he loved. . .

Be it done to me, according to your word
Be it done to me, by the working of your power
Be it done to me, my life is yours, my heart
I am your handmaid, my Lord, I am your handmaid, my Lord.
