Music For Advent
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 Favoured Lady,”
“For know a Blessed Mother thou shalt be,
All generations laud and honour thee
Thy Son shall be Immanuel, by seers foretold
Most highly favoured Lady,”
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 favoured Lady!
Of her Immanuel, the Christ was born,
In Bethlehem, all on a Christmas morn.
And everyone throughout the world will ever say,
“Most highly favoured lady!”
