Blessed One [Song]

Each of the double couplet verses helps to reflect on Mary’s role in the story of our salvation and her place in the life of the church, while also remaining somehow Christ-centred.

LYRICS

God exalted you, daughter,
And called you in time
To offer your womb,
To bring forth the Divine
You were willing to serve
Though you knew not a man
You trusted in God
And said “Yes” to His plan
Ave! Ave!
Ave! Ave!
Ave! Ave!
Blessed one
