The Annunciation

Representative Text

1 One day while Mary knelt in prayer
She saw an angel standing there.
His glory filled the dwelling place.
He said to her, "Hail, full of Grace!"

2 Now Mary feared and bowed her head,
"Oh, do not hear," the angel said,
"For God shall send His Son to thee.
His holy Mother, thou shalt be."

3 Then Mary spoke the blessed word:
"Behold the Handmaid of the Lord.
As thou hast said, so be it done."
The Son of God became her Son.
