A Message For Mary
by Lewis Greer and Gary Dugan
© Dugan and Greer, 1999

All around heaven the news was passed on:
God's plan is about to unfold
The Son is now leaving to live among men
But what will they do when they learn He is there
And how will they ever be told?
Then suddenly one sound replaced all the rest
And only God's voice could be heard.
"I'm seeking a servant of courage and worth
To go to the earth with My word."

"I have a message, a message for Mary
Who will see that it goes?
It must be delivered with speed and with care -
It's very important she knows.
She is the chosen one -
She will bear My Son."

"Send me!" cried each angel and the heavenly host
Joined in to offer the same
This wonderful word will bring joy to the girl
The whole earth will soon praise (bless) her name
The whole earth will soon praise (bless) her name

Then Gabriel stepped out and bowed to the Lord.
"Your message I'll take to the child.
Now, soften her heart to accept what I say
That mankind may be reconciled."

And that very evening they met face-to-face
The angel and the young Nazarene
And though she did not grasp the depth of it all
Mary gave herself to the King

"I have a message, a message for Mary
Who will see that it goes?
It must be delivered with speed and with care -
It's very important she knows.
She is the chosen one -
She will bear My Son."
