Son Of Mary

    Mary, Mary, don’t you weep
    Angels guard you while you sleep
    Mary, Mary, don’t you cry
    God will grant you a faultless child

    Now, for a while she fled away
    Beneath the palms she hid
    When she returned they saw the child
    But doubted what she said
    They would have stoned her there and then
    But for a strange event
    The baby spoke, that made the folk
    Believe her innocent

    Mary, Mary, don’t you fear
    Angels guide you everywhere
    Mary, Mary, don’t be afraid
    God will bless you and show him the way

    Now, time moved the heavens
    Through the Spirit he did grow
    The books of law and wisdom
    God taught him to know
    He healed the sick and cured the hearts
    Gave sight to the blind
    By God’s decree he raised the dead
    Though many still denied

    Though only a few did follow him
    Amongst Israel’s sons
    He never stopped calling
    The Lord thy God is One
    Some disbelievers had a plan
    Would nail him to his death
    God made it look as if they did
    But raised him up instead

    Mary, Mary, don’t you weep
    Heaven guards him while you sleep
    Mary, Mary, time will come
    Death won’t touch him ‘til his work is done

    Now just before he lifted up
    He gave the world the news
    That God would send a comforter
    With the Spirit of Truth
    And he would be His witness
    And deliver God’s word
    While many people know him
    Still many haven’t heard

    Mary, Mary, don’t you weep
    Angels guard you while you sleep
    Mary, Mary, don’t feel low
    He’ll return on the day that God says so

    Mary, Mary
    Mary, Mary
    Mary, Mary
