Fair Woman of JERUSALEM
Sheer grace of beauty yet laden,
Above Helen of Troy and queens
Modest and demure as a damsel
Captured souls ain't fiery ships.
Blessed are you among women
Blessed is the fruit of your womb
A brilliant Archangel Gabriel
Announced good tidings to come!
Amazed with awe and wonder,
But why since I am a virgin?
To conceive by the Holy Spirit?
For nothing is impossible for God!
My soul glorifies my Creator,
My spirit rejoices in my Saviour
Bewildered yet gave consent
To the beginning and the end...
Quite a long story to ponder,
Mystery beyond compare
His mercy is from age to age
Holy, Holy is His Name...
